Louise's Biscotti

MyCookbook Recipe Database
MyCookbook Member: lcummings
Recipe Category: Dessert
Recipe Preparation Level: moderate
    2 eggs
    1 cup sugar
    1/4 cup of oil
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    2 1/2 cups of flour
    2 tblsps unsweetened cocoa powder
    1 tsp baking soda
    1 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
    1 cup chopped pecan halves

    Set the oven at 350. Rub a baking sheet with oil or line it with parchment paper.
    In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla for 2 minutes. With the mixer set on its lowest speed, mix in the flour, cocoa and baking soda. Mix in the chocolate chips and the nuts just until the nuts break slightly.
    Spoon the dough onto the prepared baking sheet in two strips, making sure there is plenty of room between them. Flatten and smooth the logs with a metal spatula so they are 12 inches long and about 4 inches wide.
    Transfer the baking sheet to the hot oven and bake the strips for 40 minutes or until they are golden brown.
    Remove them from the oven and let them sit for 5 minutes.
    Carefully transfer the strips to a board. Using a sharp, serrated knife, cut the strips on a diagonal into 1/2 inch slices.
    Place the slices on the baking sheet, cut sides up. Return the sheet to the oven and bake the slices for 15 to 20 minutes or until they are golden brown.
    Remove them from the oven and transfer them to a rack. Store the cookies in an airtight container.
    Makes about 2 dozen.
