Very tasty! I love these with chai tea.
A few changes I made:
-At sarikat's suggestion, I put in 7T of butter instead of 6T and added vanilla.
-Along with the powdered sugar, I also sprinkled on cinnamon before baking. I'm a big fan of cinnamon and chocolate together, so that extra bit of flavor really made these pop for me.
-One major tip: DO NOT only let these cool for 5 minutes before slicing and returning to the oven. I'm not sure why the recipe calls for such a short amount of time. After only 5 minutes of cooling, when I went to slice my first biscotti loaf, it simply crumbled. For my second loaf, I waited a good 15-20 minutes until they were almost entirely cool and then sliced -- they turned out beautifully.
These are insanely delicious! I made a few changes as per other reviewers' suggestions: used pecans instead of walnuts, added a tsp of vanilla, and used mini chocolate chips. The dough was seriously crumbly and I had about 25% breakage, but it's totally worth saving the crumbs! Thanks so much, Maureenie! ETA: The second time, I used 7 T. butter and had way less breakage.
Quick and easy prep. I like the idea of using the chocolate chips instead of crushing blocks of semi sweet in the food processor. I used pecans instead of the walnuts since we grow them in this part of the country.
The Best!!! I have recently gone back to work and this made me the hit of the office. The only change I made was to use 1/2 c. white sugar and 1/2 brown sugar. Thanks again for the great recipe, every one wants a copy.
I skipped the confectioners sugar and my friends still loved them so much that they all asked me for the recipe. Keeping this one handy for future use!
This is one of the best biscotti recipes I have ever tried. They have great flavor and don't fall apart. They are not crispy and hard and great for dessert with an Italian meal.
soo good! just add a lil vanilla to make perfect! will make again
Funny because I think this practically identical to Martha Stewart's chocolate pistachio biscotti recipe. Nonetheless, these are great! I like it better with the walnuts, anyway :)
Oh WOW, These were amazing. I say were because my husband just about finished all of them. I hid a few for the gift bags. I used almonds, dark and white chocochips. The cooling time was perfect and the powderd sugar looks like snow ;-) Not a single crumbler. Thank you this will be a regular cookie for around here Zinfull
