Tuesdays with Dorie: Chocolate BiscottiJune 14, 2011
What I did: I made half the recipe, which gave me 13 biscotti.
How it went: Easy! That’s what I like about biscotti: they’re easy to make and last for a while (if they don’t get gobbled up!). That’s why I made a bunch recently to bring to a party. And, the best part is that people are impressed that you made biscotti, because it seems like it would be complicated. But it’s not!
How it tasted: These are crisp, full of chocolate flavor and accented with a crunch of almonds. My husband ate one and declared it good (there was a “mmmmm” in there too). I had been thinking of taking Dorie’s suggesting and adding some melted white chocolate, but after eating one plain, I decided that they were great plain and I didn’t need to embellish them.
