Come On Up To The House

Orange Chocolate Biscotti

My new favorite treat for my afternoon coffee has to be these Biscotti. I found a cook book at the library recently that had a different combo for their biscotti. So I changed mine up to what I had in my kitchen and absolutely love these. I keep them in a glass jar on the counter for up to one month.
Orange Chocolate Biscotti
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1 stick butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
3 tbsp orange marmalade
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1 tsp orange extract
Mix dry ingredients together and set aside. Beat together butter and sugar until fluffy. Add in eggs one at a time and beat until well blended. Add in flour mixture and mix until blended. Add in marmalade and orange extract; mix. Add in chocolate chips and mix. Split dough in half, wrap each half in platic wrap and refrigerate until firm for about 20 – 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or use a silpat. Roll out dough to 12 – 14 inch log. I use the plastic wrap they are wrapped in to help roll them out so I don’t touch the dough. Transfer the log to the baking sheet and space them about 3 – 4 inches apart. Bake until light and golden and dry to the touch. About 30 minutes.
Remove from the oven. Reduce oven temperature to 300°F. Allow the logs to cool for about 15 minutes. Then transfer to a cutting board and cut using a serrated knife, slice the logs on a diagonal into about .5 inch slices. Return the slices to the baking sheet standing upright, and bake them until they are dry and golden – another 20 to 30 minutes. I tend to use my convection oven for this last step
