Chocolate Chip Biscotti
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter (no substitutions)
1 cup sugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup mini chocolate chips or finely chopped regular chips
Optional: dark chocolate for coating
pre-heat oven to 350, grease a large cookie sheet
Mix together flour, baking powder and salt in bowl.
Cream butter and sugar, add eggs and vanilla
Add flour and then chips. Batter will be stiff.

Divide the batter in half and make a 12″ log about 3″ wide with each portion on the greased cookie sheet. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until logs are lightly browned. Cool for 20 minutes, move to cutting board and slice the logs into 1/2″ thick slice. Place on the cookie sheet and then bake for 8 minutes on each side.
If you want to dip them in chocolate wait until they are cool.Melt chocolate and then dip the cookies, scrapping off excess, place on wax paper covered cookie sheet and put in the refrigerator until set.

    Yum. I may have to do these tomorrow. I have only once made biscotti and it was before I had my mixer.
