    Sharon123's Note:

    Biscotti is sturdy enough to take to a picnic, but elegant enough to serve at a buffet. This yummy version has the rich taste of caramel. Adapted from the King Arthur flour people.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350*F.
    2. 2
      In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, pecan meal, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
    3. 3
      Add the butter and mix until evenly crumbly. Beat in the egg, egg yolk and water. Add the chips and stir just until they're evenly distributed.
    4. 4
      Lightly flour a clean work surface. Divide the dough into three portions. Working with one piece at a time, roll the dough into a log about 1 1/4 inches in diameter. Repeat with the remaining dough. Place the logs on a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet and flatten slightly, leaving 2 inches between them.
    5. 5
      Lightly beat the egg white with 2 teaspoons of water. Brush this glaze over the tops of the logs.
    6. 6
      Bake for 30 minutes, until they're lightly browned. Remove from the oven, and allow them to cool for 5 minutes. Slice them into 3/4-inch thick slices on the diagonal, place them cut-side down on the baking sheet, and return them back to the oven to bake for 10-15 more minutes, until they're crisp and lightly browned.
    7. 7
      Allow to cool, then dip an end in melted chocolate, if desired.
    8. 8
      Yield: about 5 dozen.

      I was looking for something to use up the pecan meal I bought when I found this. So glad I did! My youngest can't get enough of it! Thanks for sharing!

      I really love the flavor and the use of the pecan meal. You get that great pecan flavor evenly through the entire cookie. As I needed to use the food processor to grind the nuts I just added the dry ingredients and whizzed the the butter, egg and water. It was done in a min then I just stirred in the chips. This makes a very light biscotti with a soft and crumbly texture. It's the kind of cookie that will dissolve if you dunk it in your coffee. It works best it you take a bite of cookie and then a sip of the coffee, tea or milk. Made for Photo Tag's, Holiday Cookie Exchange Party.
