Where does the time go during the Christmas rush! Wow, it's been a week since my last post -- shame on me :-) I tempted you with recipes & then I go into hiding for a week ('cause I was bakin' all those goodies!!). For my stamping ladies I made up little Christmas packages for them. I had never made biscotti before, but a friend of mine gave me this recipe and they are SO good!! So if you're in one of my stampin' groups and having a peek on here, you've caught a glimpse of your Christmas goodie from me. I always like to include a recipe when I give someone baked goods. Then if they love it, they can make more, and if they have allergies, they will know what's in the treat. So... without further delay - THE RECIPE.....
Chocolate Almond Biscotti
2 1/4 cups flour 6oz. white chocolate
1/4 cup cocoa Almond Extract
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 cups chocolate chips
1-1/2 cups slivered almonds
4 large eggs
1-1/2 cups white sugar
**Preheat oven 350 degrees. Mix flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt, chocolate chips and slivered almonds well in a bowl. In a new bowl, beat eggs & sugar until mixture holds a ribbon-like trail when lifting the whisk. Add flour mixture. Shape into a log on a cookie sheet (I find the dough VERY sticky! I also find it easier to make it into 1-3 logs as it REALLY spreads during baking). Press & flatten as desired. Bake 25 minutes, cool 20 minutes on a rack. Cut into 3/4" strips and bake an additional 12 minutes. Cool completely and dip tops in melted white chocolate with almond extract to taste.
ENJOY!!! Let me know how you like them.
