Triple Chocolate Biscotti

I was looking forward to making biscotti so much. I love biscotti and they go really well with tea. These biscotti had a deep chocolate flavor from both the chopped chocolate and the cocoa powder. They weren’t so sweet due to the cocoa powder. The white chocolate provides the sweetness. I wish that the logs that I rolled out would have expanded more in the oven because they ended up being a little bit stubby. I’m looking forward to dipping many biscotto in my tea.

Yield: 2 lb 14 oz

4 oz unsalted butter
14 oz granulated sugar
5 eggs
14 oz pastry flour
4 oz cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 oz chopped 58% chocolate

Directions:

  1. Cream the butter and sugar together.
  2. Add the eggs one at a time until combine.
  3. Sift the dry ingredients.
  4. Add slowly to the mixture. Stir until incorporated.
  5. Scale out four 11.5 oz amounts of dough.
  6. Shape each amount into logs by rolling the dough is bread flour. If your dough is on the wet side, use more bread flour to bring the dough together.
  7. Roll tightly in parchment paper and tape shut. Wrap the roll tightly in plastic wrap.
  8. Put in freezer.
  9. Bake logs in a 350F for 40 minutes.
  10. Cool for at least 20 minutes and slice at a diagonal with a serrated knife.
  11. Bake until done, roughly 20 minutes in a 200F oven. The biscotto should be very dry.
  12. Cool and dip the tip in white chocolate.
