Recipe #10: Biscotti

Basic Biscotti
(from the Cookie Bible)

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

So, this is the recipe that makes up basic biscotti – then, you are free to add whatever you’d like. My first biscotti recipe used cinnamon chips and white chocolate glaze, which was very good. Then, I made chocolate chip hazelnut biscotti, which was also a favorite. This recipe below uses mini chocolate chips and chopped hazelnut. I then melted some Nutella with about 2 tablespoons of shortening to make a yummy glaze to go on top. I dipped some in the glaze and sprinkled with the leftover hazelnuts. Overall, this is a great biscotti recipe, and a perfect breakfast food or dessert. Enjoy!
