Recipe Ingredients for Chocolate Almond Biscotti

2 cups whole wheat flour
3/4 cups cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 1/4 cups almonds
1/3 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Recipe Directions for Chocolate Almond Biscotti

  1. Adjust the oven rack to the center and preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, and pepper.

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, vanilla, and almond extract.

  4. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and mix in the eggs, along with the melted butter (or finely ground chocolate). Stir in the nuts.

  5. With damp hands, form the dough into two 14-inch logs, spaced evenly on the baking sheet.

  6. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and cool 10 minutes. Using a long serrated knife, slice the dough diagonally into 1/2-inch cookies. Arrange cookies, cut side down on a baking sheet and return to oven an additional 20 minutes. If you like extra-crisp biscotti, flip them over midway during baking and bake them a few minutes longer.

  7. Cool completely and store in an airtight container.
