Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter - softened
  • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon instant espresso powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups flour

Dipping Chocolate:

  • 10 oz dark chocolate morsels
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons espresso powder

Instructions

  • 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.
  • Using damp fingertips, shape a log (or 2) on a prepared pan. About 10-11″ long and 2″ wide.
  • Bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees.
  • Reduce oven temperature to 325.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool enough to be handled about 10-15 minutes.
    Carefully transfer to a cutting board.
    With a serrated knife, carefully slice the logs into 3/4 inch thick slices and arrange on the baking sheet cut side down.
  • Return the sliced biscotti back into the oven and cook for another 25 minutes until crispy.
  • Let them cool before dipping.
  • Melt chocolate morsels according to the package instructions.
  • Add instant espresso powder and mix well.
  • Dip however, you like.*

Notes

*Note: You can add a small amount of vegetable or canola oil to the melted chocolate to make a smoother, glossier texture. I didn't do this and probably should have.
