Recipe: Biscotti



  • 5 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 cups cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 3 tbsp aged rum
  • 2 cups semi-sweet gourmet chips
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Chocolate Rum Drizzle

  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 3 tbsp aged rum

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cream sugar and butter. Beat eggs, one at a time, until smooth and add aged rum. Sift together the dry ingredients and add to the egg mixture. Stir in chocolate chips.  Shape the dough into 3 loaves about 1 1/2 inch thick and brush with beaten egg yolk. Bake 25 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Cut each loaf into 1 inch slice and place back on the baking sheet. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and place slices back into the oven. Bake another 25 minutes, then remove from the oven and cool. Melt the semi-sweet chocolate, transfer to a room temperature bowl, mix in 3 tbsp rum, and drizzle over the biscotti. Makes the perfect holiday pastry!

Enjoy this incredible treat with a cup of fresh roasted coffee, steaming cocoa, or ice cold milk.
