And right back to it. I was bored tonight and felt like creating something, and there was some cocoa powder staring me in the face. I like the lack of dairy in biscotti, and thought some nice chocolate biscotti would be lovely tomorrow morning.
I started by looking at this recipe, but didn't really follow it. And it worked out fine, so it just goes to show. Here's what I did:
Mix together. Shape into flat log (see picture). Bake at 350 for 35 min. Let cool. Cut into biscotti shapes. Bake again, 10 min. twice, once on each side. Let cool. Dunk.*
* I didn't dunk these right away.** That will have to wait until tomorrow morning's coffee.
** I have now dunked. They are a little too crunchy, but very good. I think I will use a touch more sugar next time, or semi-sweet chocolate. And I could definitely go for a little more crumble. I wonder how I do that. Anyone?
