A simple recipe for a delicious treat to serve with coffee.

Nonna Rosa is my grandchildren's moniker for me. "Grandma Rose"...they like softer chewier version!

Serves:

12-15 individual servings

Prep:

30 Min

Cook:

45 Min

Ingredients

4 Tbsp
butter (optional-only use for chewy biscotti...no butter makes the traditional crisp crunchy biscotti)
3/4 c
sugar
2
whole eggs
1/2 tsp
vanilla extract
2 c
all purpose flour
2 tsp
baking power
1 pinch
salt
1/2 c
chopped pecans or almonds
1 c
chocolate semi-sweet chips melted

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees

Butter and dust baking sheet with flour to prevent sticking.
2
Cream together butter and sugar(if butter is used) and add to eggs. Beat well. Mix in vanilla.

Add flour/salt/baking powder and nuts and mix well.

Shape into two small loaves and bake for 30 minutes or until tops are golden. Remove from oven.
3
Let loaves cool slightly and slice on diagonal 1 inch slices.

Return the slices to baking pan and place in oven again...lower oven temp. to 250 degrees.

Bake for additional 15 minutes turning slices once while cooking.

Cool on racks. Dip top edges in melted chocolate and let dry.

These will keep in parchment or an airtight container for several days :)

Enjoy!
