Brownie Almond Biscotti are a sweet and chocolaty twist on the classic Italian cookie. Make a batch to dunk in your morning coffee.
- 1/2 cup butter melted
- 3 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1-1/3 cups sugar
- 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup unblanched almonds toasted and coarsely chopped
- 1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In the bowl of a mixer, combine the butter, eggs and vanilla. Mix well. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, cocoa, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Gradually add to butter mixture just until combined – dough will be crumbly.
Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead in almonds and chocolate chips. Divide dough in half. On an ungreased baking sheet, shape each portion into a 12-in. x 3-in. log, leaving 3 in. between the logs.
Bake at 325° for 30-35 minutes or until tops are cracked. Cool for 15 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and cut diagonally with a serrated knife into 1/2-in. slices.
Place cut side down on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until firm and dry. Remove to wire racks to cool.
