Chocolate Chip Biscotti


  • 1 cup white or brown sugar

  • 0.25 cup Butter softened

  • 2 Eggs

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • 2 cups Plain Flour

  • 2 large spoonfuls cocoa powder

  • 1 teaspoon Baking powder

  • Salt

  • 1 cup chocolate chip


  • 1.

    Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

  • 2.

    Cream the sugar and butter together in a stand-up mixer until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time and continue to beat for a few more minutes. Add the vanilla.

  • 3.

    Whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt and add to the mixer. Combine well then stir in the chocolate chips.

  • 4.

    Shape the dough with lightly floured hands into a log, approximately 12 inches long and 3 inches wide. You may find it easier to divide the dough in half and form two shorter logs. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet flatten slightly and bake for 30 minutes.

  • 5.

    Remove from oven and cool until you can handle it. Slice diagonally, into 1/2-inch slices and return to the baking sheet. Bake again until the cookies lightly brown, about ten minutes. Flip them over and brown another few minutes. Cool and enjoy with a cup of espresso!

prinzfamily I think you made the same error I made. Michael's recipe calls for cutting 'when cool until you can handle it'. I found that the centre was still really hot, which caused it to crumble and break and not cut cleanly. Next time I make them (and I WILL make them again) I will let them cool completely before slicing. Might make them the day before I need them and double bake the following day.
By the way, for those who like these, I paired them with Michael's Dark Chocolate Paté and they were AMAZING!

Can someone tell me how many this makes?
