Chocolate Coffee Biscotti

Chocolate Coffee Biscotti

Ingredients

  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Bean Paste
  • 1 teaspoon Nielsen-Massey Pure Coffee Extract
  • 1 tablespoon Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Sugar (divided)
  • 1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate morsels

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large, light-colored, heavy-rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.

In a medium bowl, add flour, baking powder and salt; whisk to combine and set aside.

In a large bowl, add butter and sugar; beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until combined. Add eggs, Vanilla Extract and Coffee Extract; Beat until creamy, about 2 minutes. Reduce speed to low; add flour mixture and beat until combined. Add chocolate and beat until combined.

Dough will be slightly sticky. Divide dough in half. Using a lightly floured surface, roll dough into two 12-inch logs. Transfer logs to prepared sheet pan and press and form each log so the width of each is about 2 1/2 inches across and the height is about 3/4 inch. Sprinkle each log with 1/2 tablespoon of Vanilla Sugar and gently press into dough.

Bake until done, about 25-30 minutes; remove from oven and carefully transfer parchment paper with biscotti to a wire rack and slightly cool. Reduce oven to 325 degrees F.

Using a serrated knife, cut logs crosswise, on the diagonal, into 1/2 inch slices. Place on parchment-lined sheet pan, cut side down. Bake until crisp, about 16-20 minutes, turning biscotti over halfway through baking time. Cool on wire rack and store in an airtight container.

Notes:

You can use Pure Vanilla Bean Paste in place of Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Bean Paste to achieve a different, but still delicious, flavor profile. Simply use the same amount of the Pure Vanilla Bean Paste.
