DOUBLE CHOCOLATE CHIP BISCOTTI

Just take a look at this photo of the double chocolate chip biscottis that I made a few days ago. I have posted a few biscotti recipes in the past on Food Tastes Yummy but I couldn't believe that I never posted this all time favourite! I used to make these delectable treats often for my parents. They used to give me a few requests a month for these cookies so they could take them to work with them. My parents used to run a corner store and my dad just loved dunking these treats into his morning coffee. So without further adieu I give you my recipe for double chocolate chip biscottis. Give these treats a dunk in your next morning coffee.

Makes 24 cookies

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Baking time: 20 minutes (first bake)
20-25 minutes (second bake)

Ingredients:

  • 1-1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp instant coffee granules
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten

1. Preheat the oven to 350 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, melted butter, vanilla extract and coffee granules. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients. Fold the mixtures together slowly until a dough forms, then gently fold in the chocolate chips.

2. Divide the dough in half and roll each into a 12-inch long log. Transfer to the baking sheet. Brush the tops of the logs with the beaten egg white, then place it into the oven and bake it for 20 minutes. Remove it from the oven and let it cool for 5 minutes. Transfer the logs onto a cutting board; then cut diagonally using a sharp knife, into 3/4-inch thick slices.

3. Place the cookies back onto the baking sheet, making sure that the cookies are standing upright. Bake it for an additional 20-25 minutes. Let the cookies cool completely then enjoy. Biscottis can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
