Excludes time spent resting.
Ingredients (Serves 4-6)
- 300 g biscuit cookies
- 150 g butter (unsalted)Note
Bring to room temperature to soften.
- 2 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
- 140 g sugar
- 35 ml marsala (2 1/3 tbsp)Note
Can be substituted with sherry or rum.
- 35 ml water (2 1/3 tbsp)
- 50 g pine nuts
Place the biscuit cookies in a food processor and process until roughly crumbled.
If you don't have a food processor, you can put the biscuit cookies in a thick plastic bag and use a rolling pin to crush them.
In a bowl, combine the butter, cocoa powder, crushed biscuit cookies, sugar, water and marsala (pre-mixed), then mix together.
Roughly chop half of the pine nuts and add them to the mixture, and add the remaining whole pine nuts as well. Mix together until moist throughout.
Divide the mixture into 4 to 6 equal portions, place on a clean cutting board or other work surface, and roll each into a "salami" shape. Wrap each in aluminum foil and tie with kitchen twine. If possible, let rest for about a day. Serve sliced as desired.
To store: Will keep in the refrigerator for at least 1 week.
