Cookie Bake Off - Rosa's Chocolate Chip Biscotti
1st Prize!
Looking for a traditional biscotti recipe with a twist? Well, Rosa Rotstein has a recipe that will satisfy that craving.



Ingredients:
  • 1 ¾ cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¾ cup toasted almonds
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 stick of butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Method:

In a bowl, mix four, baking powder, almonds, and chocolate chips. Stir.

In another bowl, add sugar, eggs, butter, orange zest, and vanilla extract. Stir.

Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients a bit at a time. Stir.

Dust cutting board with flour, putting some on your fingers so they are not sticky.

Roll dough into two logs, pinching them in the middle, then rolling them out like a snake. (*Traditional biscotti are large, but you can make them smaller to yield more cookies).

Brush cookies with egg whites.

Place on a baking sheet and bake in oven for 20 minutes at 325 degrees.

Remove from oven, allow to cool, slice them up, and then put back in oven.

Bake at 325 degrees for 20 more minutes.

Remove from oven.

So delicious, and so simple to make. The only challenge will be seeing if you can resist eating them all up before your guests arrive!
