Sweet Mornings – Espresso Biscotti Recipe

November 27, 2012 | Sweet Mornings | Sweet Recipes | Comments

I want to share this biscotti recipe with you. This was my first time making biscotti and my belly is happy with the outcome. I figure since it’s the holiday season and my iced-lattes have turned into hot ones, it would be nice to have a delicious espresso biscotti to enjoy with my coffee! I love that adding your own twist to a basic biscotti recipe is pretty easy. You can add nuts, different types of extracts, dried berries, chocolate chips, etc. I decided to keep mine pretty simple, but added a good amount of espresso in the batter and in the chocolate. For a little extra sweetness, I dipped a few in coconut… so good! After I made them, I thought that mini chocolate chips and even a few ground coffee beans would’ve added a nice touch! Cheers to chilly mornings…

 

Espresso Biscottis
6 Tablespoons butter
2/3 cups light brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
A dash salt
2 1/2 teaspoons instant espresso powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 eggs
2 cups flour

 

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a mixing bowl beat butter, sugar, extract, salt, espresso powder and baking powder until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, scraping down the sides.
On low speed add in flour. The dough will be sticky.
You can divide the dough in half for smaller biscottis (like I did) or use it all to make one larger log.
Using wet finger tips, create a log on a greased pan. About 11-12″ long and 2″ wide.
Bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Then remove from the oven and let cool.
Reduce oven temperature to 325. Return the sliced biscottis back into the oven and cook for another 25 minutes until crispy.
Let them cool before dipping.

 

Chocolate Dipping Sauce
1 bag semi-sweet morsels
4 teaspoons instant espresso powder

Directions:
Melt the chocolate in a double broiler or chocolate fondu pot. Stir in the espresso powder and dip half of each biscotti in the melted chocolate.
