Jacque with Daisy Lane Cakes. Can I just say, BRAVO Jacque! I absolutely positively LOVED these! I didn't make them into true biscotti, all hard and crunchy. BUT I did a "half baked" version. I really really enjoy my biscotti on the chewier side, more cookie-like.
Oh and did these deliver such incredible flavors!!! The original recipe calls for espresso powder and bittersweet chocolate chunks. Well, I don't drink coffee-type drinks so I don't have that on hand, and after baking many many of Dorie's recipes, I've discovered I don't have the love that she does of the deep dark chocolate flavor. So I opted for 1/2 c. of mini semi-sweet chips and 1/4 c. of white chocolate chips. Also, because I omitted the espresso powder, I decided to add a splash of almond extract (only the BEST flavor on the planet!) to give it more of a chocolatey-almond oomph.
These were sheer perfection at my house. The perfect balance of chocolate and nuts and chewy goodness. The best part...actual prep time was about 15 min. So incredibly EASY for such maximum output!!!
