Chocolate Biscotti Recipe #1

  • 1 c. flour
  • 1/2 c. sugar (start with this, may need more according to your own taste)
  • 1/2 c. cocoa
  • 2 t. flavoring (I used raspberry; orange or almond would work nicely too)
  • 2 egg equivalents
  • 3/4 t. baking powder
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • splash of liquor to match flavoring (I used Chambord)
  • 3/4 cup sliced almonds image placeholder

Combine flour, sugar, cocoa, salt and baking baking powder. Separately, mix flavoring and eggs. Combine. Add splash of liquor or water as needed to have a sticky consi stency. If the mixture is too stiff, it won't spread out properly.

Put this glob on a greased cookie sheet and arrange it into a log about 15 inch es long and 1 1/2 - 2" wide. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool a few minutes, then slice diagonally into 1/2- 3/4" slices. I got 18 pieces from mine. Place the slices on their side and put back in the oven (300 degrees) for 15 minutes. Turn over and cook another 10-15 minutes.
