New Recipe: Chocolate Chip and Pistachio Biscotti

It is time to start making some holiday cookies for friends and family.  Do you have any fun recipes to share?  Try my  Chocolate Chip and Pistachio Biscotti (Italian for Twice Baked).


1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 cup pistachios, chopped
2 eggs
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1-1/2 tsp. grated orange rind
1 egg white, lightly beaten
1C chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour and baking powder in a medium bowl. In a separate large bowl, combine eggs, sugar, butter, vanilla, and orange with a mixer. Slowly add dry ingredients until a sticky dough ball forms. Stir in chocolate chips and pistachios. Place on a floured surface and divide in half and roll into 2 12-inch long logs. Place logs onto a baking sheet and brush with egg whites and slide them into the oven for 20 minutes.

Remove from oven and place on cooling rack until slightly cool (around 5 minutes). Take one of the logs and cut it diagonally into 3/4 inch slices on a cutting board. Do the same for the other log. Put cookies back on the baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes until golden. Allow cookies to cool on a rack.

These are great for holiday parties or the perfect gift for a housewarming party. Enjoy!!
