PB & Chocolate biscotti

I’ve made biscotti once while in undergrad- and I was surprised how easy it was.  Turns out, Sam has never had homemade biscotti- so I decided to make some one Saturday afternoon.  You can omit the peanut butter or swap out the chocolate chips for peanut butter chips, etc.  There are many variations of this delicious treat.

Adapted from:Annie’s Eats Blog

3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
6 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar
3 tsp vanilla extract
3 large eggs
1 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  In a medium bowl combine: flour, baking powder and salt.  Whisk together to blend.  In a stand mixer combine butter, peanut butter and sugar.  Beat on medium speed until the mixture is fluffy and smooth for about 1-2 minutes.   Add vanilla, and beat eggs in one at a time.  Turn the mixer on low-speed and blend in the dry ingredients until everything is incorporated.  Stir in the chocolate chips until they are evenly distributed.

Divide the dough in half.  Shape each half into logs, placing on the baking sheet about 3 inches apart.  Bake for 30 minutes.  Remove the baking sheet from the oven to let the logs cool for about 10 minutes.  Slice the logs diagonally into slices about 1/2-3/4 inches thick.  Lay the slice on the baking sheet.  Bake, turning over once, until the slices are slightly crisp, about 20-30 minutes.  Let the biscotti cool completely and then enjoy!
