Biscotti With Almonds/orange/chocolate
Author/Submitted by: Jo Anne Merrill
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In an electric mixing bowl,
combine butter, sugar, orange peel and vanilla; beat until
light and creamy. Sift together the dry ingredients. With
the mixer on slow, add dry ingredients to butter mixture and
mix until thoroughly combined. Slowly add eggs and
amaretto. Add almonds and chocolate just until combined.
Remove dough to a floured surface and form into two flat
logs about 4 inches wide and the length of your cookie
sheet. Lay the logs onto buttered sheets and place on lower
rack of the oven. Bake until lightly browned, about 45
Remove to a rack to cool. With a serrated knife, cut the
loaves into half-inch slices, placing the cut slices flat
oon the cookie sheet. To make crisp, return them to the
lower rack of the oven and cook until golden, 15-20 minutes.
Remove the slices to a wire rack to cool then store in an
airtight container. Use a decorative tin for gift giving.
NOTE: If the biscotti lose their crispness, repeat the
