Chocolate Chip Biscotti

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Impera_Magna

Posted in response to a request for an authentic Italian recipe. Received recipe from the wife of a doctoral student while in grad school. The couple was from Italy and had the most adorable little red-haired son! I've had some problem w/ it "melting" during baking and not remaining loaf-like but Gina said it happened occasionally to her too! Either way, this is very tasty! (When it "melted"... I just cut it up like bar cookies! No throwing THIS away!!!)

Wonderful biscotti! I think it is the addition of the cornstarch that creates a perfect texture! Also just the perfect sweeteness, I used mini chocolate chips and toasted walnuts, thanks for a great biscotti recipe Impera!...Kitten :)
