Chocolate Biscotti


A little gift bag was hanging on the back of each of our chairs last week at The Food Studio.  The evening was already perfect without a parting gift-but who am I to refuse the gift of chocolate?  There were three biscuits which I shared at home and this recipe to make my own batch.

2 c flour

1/2 t baking powder

1/2 t baking soda

1/2 c butter

1 c sugar

2 eggs

1 t vanilla (almond or lemon extract will do)

2 c nuts

Toast nuts in oven for 8 minutes at 350 then finely chop.  Beat shortening and sugar until light and fluffy .  Mix in eggs, one at a time, beating after each one.  Add vanilla.  Mix together flour, baking soda and baking powder.  Add to liquid mixture.  Before completely combined add nuts and mix completely.  Divide into two and form into two logs with wet hands.  Pat down slightly.

Bake at 400 F for 20 minutes or until firm to touch.  Reduce oven temperature to 350F.  allow to cool for 10 minutes.  Slice at an angle with quick firm strokes with a sharp knife.  Return to cookie sheet , standing up, and return to oven for 10 minutes. 

Kath’s quote: “As with most fine things, chocolate has its season. There is a simple memory aid that you can use to determine whether it is the correct time to order chocolate dishes: any month whose name contains the letter A, E, or U is the proper time for chocolate.”-Sandra Boynton
