"I love visiting with friends over a pot of coffee, so I developed these crisp, chocolaty cookies to munch along with each cup," comments Jeanie Williams of Minnetonka, Minnesota. Brownie mix makes them easy to stir up, and a white chocolate and almond topping adds a festive look. From Taste of Home 25 top favorites! A reviewer said she love them but makes them without the white chocolate because they store better.
- 1 (20 ounce) package fudge brownie mix
- 3⁄4 cup ground almonds
- 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
- 3⁄4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 egg
- 3 egg whites
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
- 1⁄4 cup sliced almonds (optional)
- 3 ounces white baking chocolate (or dark chocolate) (optional)
- In a large bowl, combine the brownie mix, ground almonds, flour and baking powder. In a small bowl, whisk egg, egg whites and extract. Add to brownie mixture; stir until combined.
- Divide dough into thirds. On a greased baking sheet, shape each portion into a 7 inch. x 3-1/2 inch rectangle.
- Bake at 350° for 24 minutes. Remove from the oven; cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes.
- Move to a cutting board and cut diagonally with a serrated knife into 3/4 inch slices. Place cut side down on greased baking sheets. Bake 12-14 minutes longer or until firm.
- Cool on wire racks. If desired, sprinkle with sliced almonds and drizzle with white or dark chocolate. Let stand until chocolate is completely set. Store in an airtight container.
Wonderful!! Wow I am so impressed with myself for making wonderful biscotti! :) Sharon these are gems - truly. I loved how easy they came together. I did not use the almonds or chocolate as a topping as I just wanted something easy to store but for gifts I could see that will be a extra special addition. I did put all three sections on one baking sheet and they spread a bit more than I expected so I think next time I'll use two pans. I received 32 biscotti pieces and boy they tasted wonderful with a mocha I made ! Thanks for such a treat! Made for Newest Zaar Stars tag game.
VERY, VERY NICE BISCOTTI, & so easy to make, too! They are tasty enough without the almonds & chocolate, but they are really top quality with those ingredients included! I made half of them plain & the other half with the nuts & white chocolate! Another time, when I make them for company, I'd like to make a double batch, drizzling 1/3 of them with white chocolate, another third with dark chocolate, & the rest of them with a bit of each! Definitely another great keeper from you, Sharon! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe tag]
