EASY CHOCOLATE BISCOTTI RECIPE

INGREDIENTS :

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus additional for dusting
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup sifted unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten in a small bowl, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup whole almonds, roughly chopped

DIRECTIONS :

  1. Position the rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to350F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. Mix the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl; stir in the eggs and vanilla with a wooden spoon, then stir in the dried cranberries and almonds.
  3. Dust a clean, dry work surface with flour; turn the dough out onto it and knead a few turns until fairly smooth.
  4. Divide the dough in half; roll each half into 8- inch-long logs. Place these3 inchesapart on the prepared baking sheet and bake until dry to the touch and a little puffed, about 25 minutes. Transfer the baking sheets to a wire rack and cool the logs on the baking sheet at least 30 minutes.
  5. Transfer the logs to your work surface and use a serrated knife to cut them into 3/4-inch cookies, slicing on the diagonal to create long, oblong biscotti.
  6. Place these cut side down on the baking sheet and bake for 7 minutes. Turn all the cookies over so the other cut side is now down against the sheet and continue baking until crisp and lightly browned, about another 7 minutes.

This recipe makes about 24 cookies

To cool:

Leave the biscotti on the baking sheets for 10 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

To store:

They can be kept in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Variations:

Substitute any dried berry (blackberries, raspberries) for the cranberries. Chop any larger pieces of dried fruit so the bits are more even in the batter. For a heartier almond taste, add 1/4 teaspoon almond extract with the vanilla.

Follow the directions carefully. Hope you like this special dessert and Bon Apetit.
