Ingredients

Cookie

1 cup sugar
2/3 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
1 (12-ounce) package (2 cups) real semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup finely chopped hazelnuts or almonds

Chocolate Coating

1 (12-ounce) package (2 cups) real semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons shortening

Directions

Heat oven to 350°F. Combine sugar and butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Add 2 cups melted chocolate chips, eggs and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour, baking powder and salt. Beat until well mixed. Stir in hazelnuts. (Dough will be soft and sticky.)



Divide dough in half. Shape each half into 14-inch long log with floured hands. Place logs 5 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten each log to 2-inch width. Bake for 25 minutes or until set. Cool on cookie sheet 15 minutes.



Reduce oven temperature to 300°F. Cut logs diagonally into 1/2-inch slices with serrated knife. Place onto cookie sheet, cut-side down. Bake for 10 minutes. Turn slices; continue baking for 12 to 15 minutes or until dry and crisp. Cool completely.



Melt 2 cups chocolate chips and shortening in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth (2 to 4 minutes). Dip cookies halfway into chocolate; shake off excess chocolate. Place onto cooling rack over waxed paper until set.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

I would double the recipe because it does not make 4-1/2 dozen. After slicing, I baked the cookies about 10 minutes longer than the recipe called for, as I like a very crisp biscotti. Also, I omitted the shortening from the coating, as this is not necessary to make the chocolate set and I do not like trans fat in my recipes. Overall, very good recipe!
Another winning biscotti recipe from Land O Lakes. Easy to make - almost foolproof! Who knew I liked biscotti so much? I can't wait to try the other biscotti recipes since they are simple to prepare and make great gifts.

December 19, 2014 by Mallory

We recently developed a recipe for a Yule Log Cake for our 2014 Holiday Brochure. In my family, our holiday traditions revolved around cut-out cookies; a Yule Log was never part of the mix. So I was intrigued and did a little bit of research to see what this was all about. More ...
