biscotti

An Italian favorite, these twice-baked cookies are hard and perfect for dunking in your favorite hot beverage. They also keep and ship VERY well. If shipping, omit the chocolate drizzle.

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups cocoa powder

  • 5 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons baking powder

  • 1 cup butter, softened

  • 2 cups granulated sugar

  • 6 large eggs

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • 2 cups chocolate chips (try milk chocolate, white chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate – or be adventurous and try peanut butter, mint, or raspberry! Or, use 1 cup chips and 1 cup chopped nuts of choice (pictured))

  • 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate

Directions

  • Pre-heat oven to 375 F. Beat together sugar and butter until creamy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until smooth and add vanilla extract. Sift together the dry ingredients and add to the egg mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts (optional). Shape the dough into 6 longs loaves and brush with beaten egg yolk. Bake for 23 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Cut each loaf into 1-inch slices and place back on baking sheet. Reduce heat to 350 F and place slices back into the oven. Bake for another 10 minutes, then remove from the oven and cool. Melt the semi-sweet chocolate, and drizzle over the biscotti.

It was easy to make. My husband prefers it more as a cookie than a biscotti. I will make this again!

Made this recipe, came out FANTASTIC!! My family absolutely loves it. Don't know how others had such a bad experience making this. I followed the directions to the letter and it came out WONDERFUL!

Batter produces very flavorful crumbs, but to cut into 1 inch slices is nearly impossible. This was a two-hour waste of time for me. I suppose a fine tooth hacksaw might work to get through the loaf without breaking, but I tried several methods and after load #4 crumbled, the rest of the project ended up in the trash. Good luck to those who attempt.

Great recipe. My friend just asked me for it because she enjoyed the cookies so much! I made the loaves shorter/thicker, and cut them a bit larger than 1" slices when baking them the second time. The longer loaves burned when I baked them for 25 minutes, but the shorter/thicker ones came out just right. Can’t wait to make again!

FANTASTIC! I make them every year, and everyone is crazy for them. I use 3 kinds of chocolate to dribble on the top, and they're really delicious. They ARE a little hard to slice, but you just need to be patient and go carefully. A few crumble, but that's ok, 'cause the cook gets to eat the crumbs!
