Chocolate Dipped Almond Biscotti
Boardwalk Bakery -- Boardwalk Resort
3/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
4 large eggs
1 tbsp. vanilla
2 tsp. almond extract
3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. kosher salt
2 tsp. lemon zest
2 tsp. orange zest
1 cup almonds, toasted
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line the cookie sheet with parchment paper
or lightly grease. Sift flour, baking powder and salt together, and set
In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Add eggs, vanilla,
almond extract and lemon and orange zest, and beat until the mixture is
combined (it will be soupy and a bit lumpy).
Add half the flour mixture and beat until it is just combined.
Use a wooden spoon to stir in the remaining flour mixture and the nuts.
Shape the dough into two 15- x 3 1/2- x 1/2-inch logs and place them on the
cookie sheet about 3 inches apart. Bake 32 to 35 minutes or until golden
brown. Cool 2 hours.
Using a long serrated knife slice the logs diagonally into 1/2-inch slices.
Arrange cut-side down on a baking sheet and bake at 300 degrees for 7
minutes. Flip the biscotti over and bake an additional 4 to 5 minutes. Cool
on a wire rack.
6 oz. high-quality bittersweet chocolate
5 tbsp. unsalted butter
2 oz. white chocolate
Melt the bittersweet chocolate and butter in a double boiler over gently
simmering water (or melt in a microwave, stirring every 15 seconds until
nearly melted, then remove and stir until fully melted). Dip half of each
biscotto in chocolate, then let dry on a cooling rack. Melt white chocolate
in a double boiler over gently simmering water (or melt in a microwave,
stirring every 15 seconds until nearly melted, then remove and stir until
fully melted) and place in a pastry bag with a fine writing tip
(or in a plastic freezer bag with a tiny piece of the corner cut off).
Drizzle white chocolate over the dark chocolate.
Makes 36 biscotti.
