Chocolate Pistachio Biscotti
Author: 
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 24 pieces
 
Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips
  • ½ cup pistachio meats, chopped
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt until well combined. Stir in the chocolate chips and pistachios.
  3. In a small bowl, beat together the eggs and vanilla extract. Pour into the dry mixture and stir until combined. The mixture will be crumbly but should be moistened.
  4. Turn the dough out onto a floured board and knead well for 2-3 minutes, until the dough comes together in a cohesive ball. Shape the dough into a 12-inch log and transfer to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Flatten the dough to 1-inch-thick.
  5. Slide the baking sheet into the oven and bake for 30 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool for 10 minutes.
  6. Reduce the oven to 325 degrees.
  7. Slice the biscotti into ½-inch thick pieces on the diagonal. Place on the baking sheet and bake for 7-8 minutes per side, flipping once. Transfer the biscotti pieces to a cooling rack and cool completely.
  8. Store in an airtight container and enjoy within a week.
