chocolate chip biscotti – SRC

3 Nov

this month for secret recipe club i was assigned Francesca from della cucina povera. Francesca is a first generation Italian-Iranian-American living in Amsterdam – how cool is that! i LOVED Amsterdam! There were so many recipes to choose from and i pinned a bunch to try later like this persian beef, the Zereshk Polo, and baklava! ultimately i made the biscotti! i substituted chocolate chips for the almonds. YUM! this came out delicious… and huge! perfect for my MIL’s visit this week!

chocolate chip biscotti
adapted from dellacucinapovera

3 eggs
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips

In a bowl, beat eggs until thick and lemon-colored. Gradually add sugar, then vegetable oil.
In another bowl, sift together your flour, baking soda and salt. Gradually add this to egg mixture. Beat until smooth. Fold in chocolate chips.
Line a tray with parchment paper. Wet your hands and shape your dough into a fat rectangle, about ¼-inch thick, and 6inches by 10 inches. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.
Remove from oven; Allow the log to cool just so you can cut the dough into ¾-inch strips. Bake again at 375 degrees for 10 minutes or just until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.
