Chocolate Chip Biscotti
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons real vanilla extract (forgot to add but still tasted good)
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (used bread flour)
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Cream butter and sugar at medium-high speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one a time, and blend until smooth. Add vanilla, flour, baking powder and salt. Mix until just blended (do not overbeat). I added 1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325F.
Divide dough in half. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough a few times then shape into two long, slightly flattened, logs, about 2 inches wide and 12–14 inches long. Place both on a non-stick baking sheet a few inches apart. Bake for 25 minutes or until barely golden.
Let cool for 10 minutes. Slice logs on the diagonal about 1/2-inch thick. Place slices on baking sheet and bake again for 20 minutes, turning halfway through baking, until golden brown. Let cool.
