Tuesdays with Dorie: Chocolate Biscotti

June 14, 2011

This week, the Tuesdays with Dorie bakers made Chocolate Biscotti, selected by this week’s hostess Jacque.

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.

  1. love them all hanging out in a mug. These are perfect with a cup of coffee!

  2. I thought about dipping them in white chocolate and I kind of wish I would have. I wanted something more decadent. Don’t get me wrong, these were very tasty but I guess I was in the mood for something else this week.

  3. Beautiful biscotti, Jill – love the mug! 🙂

  4. they look so perfect. cafe-jar worthy!

  5. These are gorgeous! I am getting hungry reading all these posts so I might need to make more. 🙂

  6. Your biscotti look great Jill – and I love the striped teacup! I adore a recipe that comes together easily.

  7. ack these look so great! i feel like i haven’t been to your blog in too long, glad to be back 😉 they look SO pretty with the sugar sprinkles!!

  8. they look delicious! So glad your husband gave them an mmmmmmmm 🙂

  9. Great photo! I thought about dipping them in chocolate, but they were so good as-is that I didn’t bother. Biscotti really is one of those treats that impresses people.

  10. Love the cup of biscotti. Too bad they don’t make biscotti flavored coffee. Or maybe it isn’t because then you wouldn’t get to enjoy these.

    They were good, weren’t they.

  11. Mmm, loved this. Still loving them. I brought them to my parents house and my dad won’t quit eating them and I just made him some Lenox Almond Biscotti and he’s wondering what other kinds there are. (He loves crunchy cookies and has never had biscotti before.)

  12. Lovely photo! These were so delicious.

  13. I’ve never baked biscotti but, based on your recommendations, I might give this a try! They look great posed in the teacup, too.

  14. Your biscotti looks amazing-love how you arranged it in that cup!

  15. I like simple biscotti and these look great!

  16. I love the biscotti piled in that pretty cup! These were perfect even without the white chocolate, I agree.
