  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp almond extract


  • 1 1/4 cups dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp shortening
  • 1/2 cup toasted sliced almonds for coating


  • Preheat oven to 370 degrees (if you don't have a digital display, estimate). Grease or spray a loaf pan.
  • Beat eggs and sugar well. Add salt, almond extract and baking powder; beat well. Add the flour and beat until mixed.
  • Pour
  • batter into prepared pan. Bake at 370 for 20-25 minutes. Remove from
  • oven and cool on rack for about 30 minutes. Remove from pan and slice
  • loaf into 1-inch slices.
  • Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Place
  • biscotti side down on an ungreased baking sheet. Toast about 5 minutes
  • each side. WATCH CAREFULLY as you don't want them to burn. Remove
  • from oven and let cool on the baking sheet overnight to dry. HINT--what
  • I do to speed this process is I let the oven cool down slightly and put
  • the sheet with the biscotti back in the oven (the oven is off) and
  • leave them in there until I'm ready to dip them.
  • Prepare
  • chocolate dip by placing chocolate chips and shortening in a
  • microwave-proof bowl. Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute; stir. Microwave
  • on HIGH for an additional 30 seconds. Stir well until no lumps are in
  • the dip.
  • Line a baking sheet with wax paper.
  • Dip
  • the biscotti half way down in the chocolate; let excess chocolate drain off. Roll the chocolate
  • portion in the toasted almonds. Place biscotti on prepared baking
  • sheet. Repeat with remaining biscotti. Let chocolate set until firm.
