Chocolate Biscotti

We invited friends over to contra dance in our living room and I wanted to provide some appropriate snacks.  I cut up oranges (for juicy sweetness) and made Dorie Greenspan's Chocolate Biscotti (for not-too-crunchy chocolate).  Wonderful!

Jacque of Daisy Lane Cakes chose Chocolate Biscotti for the Tuesdays with Dorie bakers to bake this week.  What a great choice!

Sifted dry ingrediants

Chopped chocolate and almonds

Baked the first time

All lined up and baked the second time
It was an easy but satisfying recipe to put together:  it made a fairly stiff dough after I stirred in the chopped chocolate and almonds.  Then there was the pleasure of forming the logs of dough and patting them down.  Once the logs had baked and cooled for 20 minutes, I sliced them on the diagonal, stood them up in rows and baked for another 10 minutes.  They were perfect!


  1. Yours look great, perfect for dance snacks. I liked that these didn't crumble too much when slicing. That's a consistent issue I have when I made biscotti!

  2. What fabulous biscotti! Mine weren't that pretty but they were yummy.

  3. I have never baked or eaten biscotti--not a coffee drinker. But these do look yummy! I'll make them soon.

  4. Although I had one this morning with my coffee, and it was lovely, you don't need to drink coffee with biscotti. These would be great with milk or tea.

  5. Sounds like you really enjoyed baking the chocolate biscotti! They look delicious!
