Orange Chocolate Chip Biscotti

Recipe written by The Chef Next Door


Ingredients:

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

Pinch of kosher salt

2/3 cup sugar

1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature

Zest of one medium orange

1/4 tsp orange extract

2 eggs

1/2 cup mini chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat and set aside. 


Whisk the flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. In the bowl of your stand mixer, beat the sugar, butter, orange zest and orange extract until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until combined. Add the flour mixture and beat until just blended. Fold in the mini chocolate chips.


Turn the dough onto the prepared baking sheet and form it into a log about 12 inches long and 3 inches wide. Bake until light golden, about 30 minutes. Allow it to cool for 30 minutes.


Place the log on a cutting board and using a sharp serrated knife, cut the log on a diagonal into half-inch thick slices. Arrange the biscotti, cut side down, on the baking sheet. Bake at 350 until they are lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Transfer the biscotti to a rack and cool completely.


Bon Appetit!
