Chocolate and Pistachio Biscotti

This is a recipe which I tried from Joy Of Baking. Joy of Baking never fails. Try this crunchy and yummy biscotti’s, you’ll just love it.

Special Instructions: Recipe Source: Joy Of Baking
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes

All purpose flour- 225 g
Egg- 2
Sugar- 135 g
Vanilla essence- 1 tsp
Pistachios- 75 g
Dark chocolate chips- 100 g
Baking powder- 1 tsp


Preheat the oven to 180 degree Celsius. Beat the sugar, essence and eggs with an electric beater on high speed until it is thick, pale and fluffy. When you slowly raise the beater the batter will fall back slowly in small ribbons. In a separate bowl sift the flour and baking powder. Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and stir to combine. Finally fold the chocolate and pistachio into the dough. Transfer the dough to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.Form the dough into a 30 cm long and 3 cm wide log. Since the dough is quite sticky you might have to wet your hands before you shape the dough. Bake the log in the preheated oven for 25 minutes or until the top looks firm. Take it out from the oven and allow it to rest in a wire rack for 10 minutes. Then slice the log with a sharp knife about 2 inch slices. Place them in a baking sheet and bake for further 10 minutes, turning it over in the middle. Take it out from the oven, allow it cool in a wire rack and store them in an air tight container.
