Biscotti is an Italian cookie, which is nothing but twice baked biscuit. Here I have prepared the biscotti's with almonds and semi-sweet chocolate chips...a perfect snack with a cup of coffee are tea.
All Purpose Flour/Maida -11/2cup
Baking powder - 3/4teaspoon
Butter -1/4cup + tablespoon
Vanilla extract - 1teaspoon
Roasted almonds -1/2cup
Semi sweet Chocolate chips -1/4cup
Milk -1 to 2 tablespoons
Sieve the flour and baking powder a couple of times.
Separate the egg yolk and reserve it. Coarsely chop the almonds and keep it aside.
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Cream butter+sugar + egg white with Vanilla essence.
Add in the flour and mix it gently.
Now add the chopped almonds and mix it thoroughly.
Add in the chocolate chips and a tablespoon of milk, combine everything to form a lumpy mass.
Transfer it to a lightly floured surface, divide it into 2 equal parts.
Make them into 2 logs as shown in the picture.
Brush the logs with the reserved egg yolk and bake it for 30 minutes.
Take it out and let the logs cool for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, reduce the oven temperature to 300F.
Cut the logs diagonally into long stripes and arrange them on the baking sheet.
Bake them for 20 minutes, flipping the biscotti's after 10 minutes.
Delicious almond and chocolate chip biscotti is ready. Store them in airtight containers and enjoy with your coffee/tea/milk.
To roast the almonds, preheat the oven to 300F, spread the raw almonds on a baking tray, bake them for 10-12 minutes. You can roast cashews and peanuts also in the same manner.
