Chocolate Biscotti

Dorie Greenspan's cookbook Baking From My Home to Yours, is probably my favorite cookbook purchase of 2008. I've wanted to try making my own Biscotti for some time and I was always a bit hesitant. I didn't want to make those traditional tooth breaking biscotti we have all had. This particular recipe has been popping up in other cooking blogs I read quite a bit lately. I finally gave it a try today and I'm so glad I did. I think Biscotti may be my new favorite cookie to bake. Cookies aren't generally my favorite thing to bake. These were really simple and I didn't have to worry about making them all precisely uniform. The biscotti held together well but were nice and tender. The chocolate flavor in these was intense. I loved the taste of the melted chocolate in each bite. I dipped mine in white chocolate and they made a beautiful presentation. I know I will be making these again as well as trying some other flavor variations.
