TWD - Fruit and Nut Croquants

This week’s Tuesday with Dorie recipe is Fruit and Nut Croquants. These biscuits are like a hybrid of biscotti and meringues, but are only baked once. They are crisp on the outside, and chewy in the middle.

I used cranberries and almonds in my croquants, and sprinkled nutmeg orange sugar from Gewurzhaus on top. I didn’t have cloves, so I substituted nutmeg and cloves for nutmeg and cardamom. They tasted really good, a bit like Christmas.

To see what everyone else made this week and what they thought of it, visit the LYL section of the TWD website.


  1. I enjoyed these too. Nutmeg orange sugar sounds delicious - I think I would use that on all of my baked goods!

  2. Sounds like good substitutions. We enjoyed these too.

  3. Dear Gaye, I remember that I made these Croquants and I enjoyed the recipe, the combination of fruits and nuts is very tasty - they are a bit like Biscotti - I love the way your cookie slices look - very pretty!

  4. i liked that these didn’t crunch too much!
