About This Recipe
"This is a great biscotti recipe with peanut butter, honey-roasted peanuts and peanut butter chips! Great with coffee or tea!"
( 4 Tbsp.)
( crunchy or smooth)
1 3/4 cups
honey-roasted peanuts, finely ground
packed brown sugar
peanut butter chips
honey-roasted peanuts, coarsely chopped
Preheat oven to 350*; line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Melt butter and peanut butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat until smooth; cool.
Stir in flour, ground peanuts, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl; set aside;.
Beat eggs in a large bowl with a mixer until light, about 2 minutes.
Gradually add both sugars, then beat in the vanilla.
Drizzle in the peanut butter mixture and beat until well mixed.
Fold in the peanut butter chips, chopped peanuts, and flour mixture until blended.
Allow dough to rest for 10 minutes to thicken.
Spoon half the dough onto a prepared baking sheet and shape into a 4 X 12-inch log (moisten hands with water to control stickiness).
Repeat with remaining dough on second baking sheet.
Bake both pans for 25 minutes, rotating pans halfway through baking.
Remove and let stand for 20 minutes.
Reduce oven temperature to 325*.
Slice logs diagonally into 1/2-inch-wide strips.
Arrange strips, cut side up, on baking sheets and bake for 12 minutes.
Flip biscotti over and bake an additional 8 minutes, or until golden brown; do not overbake.
Transfer to rack to cool.
NOTE: They can also be dunked in melted chocolate by placing chocolate chips in a shallow dish wide enough to hold the longest strip of biscotti. Melt chips in microwave on high power, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth.
