Since we’re going to be sharing recipes, we might as well start with chocolate!
This one comes to us from a site called Alli-n-sons. The author is discussing a recent run, so scroll down and you’ll find the recipe and some amazing pictures of the biscotti.
- 1/3 cup butter softened
- 2/3 cup white sugar
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons instant coffee
- 2 teaspoons hot water
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup white whole wheat flour
- 1/4 cup white chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees & line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Dissolve the instant coffee in hot water in a small bowl & set aside.
In a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment cream together the butter, sugar, cocoa and baking powder.
Add eggs one at a time, beating until combined.
Add the coffee.
Slowly add in the flour, the mixture will be thick. Stir in chocolate chips.
Divide the dough in half and shape each half into a log, about 8 inches long. Place the logs side by side on the prepared cookie sheet. Lightly flatten the logs with the palm of your hand until they are about 2-3 inches wide
Bake for 25 minutes at 375 degrees.
Allow the cookie logs to cool on the pan for one hour.
Slice the logs diagonally, about 1/2 inch thick. Lay slices on a cookie sheet, cut side down and bake for an additional 8-10 minutes (or longer if your slices are thicker), until the cookies are very crisp. Cool on rack.
That’s it. This sounds like a perfect snack for my next cup of cappuccino.
