BISCOTTI, ALMOND & CHOCOLATE CHIP BISCOTTI

 

Celebrate: Italian Style by Jacqueline Miconi
The word biscotto literally means "cooked twice", ami that is exactly what you must do to these delicious cookies. These cookie/biscuits are popular with coffee, and I can remember every afternoon my grandfather sitting at the table with his coffee, dunking his biscotti, while listening to his 'Italian Programs'on the radio.



Ingredients
• 1/2 cup slivered almonds
• 1/2 cup chocolate chip semi-sweet morsels
• 1 1/2 cups flour
• 1 cup sugar
• 2 teaspoons baking powder
• 3 eggs
• 1/4 cup softened butter


Directions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large bowl, beat eggs for about 5 minutes. Add sugar, butter and baking powder. Mix well. Then add flour gradually, stirring constantly to avoid dumping. Slowly stir in almonds and chocolate chips. Be sure they are well distributed throughout the mixture. Knead and roll out dough into 2 loaf-like rolls.

Next, place onto a slightly greased cookie sheet and flatten somewhat. Bake about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven, and allow biscotti to cool for 10 minutes. Once cool, cut them into 1/2" slices. Place slices cut side down and return to oven for another 20-30 minutes or until biscotti is dry and crisp. Cool completely and enjoy!
