Chocolate Almond Biscotti~~Sweet Punch

I have never tried biscottis till now eventhough i have seen them in many of my blogger buddies spaces,but seriously i never wanted to try them..Our this month's Sweet punch, a baking monthly event's challenge is this chocolate almond biscotti..Biscottis is a type of Italian cookies which needs to be baked twice, so that these cookies turn dry and can be stored for many days to enjoy..For my surprise, my first ever biscotti turned out simply fabulous and we couldnt stop having them, since am a chocoholic person needless to say i went for more chocolate chips than the almonds, eventhough the nutty texture of almonds give a wonderful taste to this ultimate biscottis..Cutting this already baked biscottis was quite tricky and its can break or crumble the baked dough,you need loads of patience while cutting the baked dough and the final result will be a tremendous prefect biscottis..Enjoy this biscottis with a cup of coffee or tea for your evening snacks, definitely you will have a fabulous snacks..


3/4cup Almonds (toasted & chopped coarsely)
2/3cup Sugar
2nos Eggs
1tsp Vanilla extract
1tsp Baking powder
1/4tsp Salt
1+3/4cup All purpose flour
150gms Chocolate (chopped)

Preheat the oven to 350F, line a baking sheet over a greased baking tray..Sift the flour,baking powder and salt together and keep aside, in a bowl beat the sugar,eggs,vanilla extract until they turns pale,mix the sifted flour to the wet ingredients and mix well, fold in the chopped chocolate chunks and chopped almonds..

Now turn the dough as a log with a wet hand coz the dough will be quite sticky and transfer to the baking tray..Bake for 20minutes,remove from oven and let it cool completely.

Keep the oven temperature to 320F, cut the cooked log into medium sized slices, arrange again over a baking sheet and bake for 10minutes and turn the slices and bake again for 7-10minutes....

Let them cool completely and store in air tightened box..
