How to Make Chocolate Dipped Pistachio Biscotti

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together the butter and baking powder,add the egg and vanilla the mix in the flour and cornmeal,(I mix the two together before adding to the butter/egg mixture.) add the orange zest and 1/2 a cup of the pistachios,reserve 1/4 cup for later.
  2. Form the dough into three loaves,8 by4 by 1 inch high,on a cookie sheet pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean at the corners. Cool for 1 hour.
    Cut the cookies into 1 inch slices and lie cut side down on the cookie sheet.
  3. Lower the oven to 325 degrees,bake the sliced cookies 8 minutes per side turning them carefully so as not to break them.
    Meanwhile in a sauce pan melt the chocolate and the shortening,dip the tops of the cookies in the chocolate and place on a sheet of wax paper,then dust the tops with the remaining chopped pistachios,let cool completely. Then enjoy your hard work with a good cup of espresso!!! :)
