Biscotti is a wonderful treat… this is a basic recipe but you can do different spins on it by adding nuts or dried currants or dipping the ends in chocolate. Enjoy with a cup of espresso!
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup sugar
1 stick of unsalted butter, room temperature
1/4 tsp salt
2 large eggs
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F . Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Whisk flour and baking powder in a medium bowl to blend. With a mixer, beat sugar, butter and salt until blended. Beat in one egg at a time. Add the flour mixture and beat until blended—do not over beat this will make the dough tough. Form the dough in a 13″ long 3″wide log on the baking sheet. Bake until golden about 40 minutes. Cool for 30 minutes. Place log on cutting board, using a sharp serrated knife cut on a diagonal into 3/4″ thick slices, arrange cut side down on baking sheet…bake an additional 15 minutes.
