Ingredients

Biscotti

2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup finely chopped walnuts, toasted
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 to 3 teaspoons all-purpose flour
1 egg white
1 tablespoon water
Sugar, if desired

Drizzle

3/4 cup real semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon shortening

Directions

Heat oven to 350°F. Combine 2 cups flour, walnuts, baking powder, baking soda and salt in medium bowl; set aside. Beat sugar and eggs in large bowl at medium-high speed until thick and lemon-colored. Add butter and vanilla. Continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low. Beat, gradually adding flour mixture and scraping bowl often, until well mixed.

Turn dough onto lightly floured surface (dough will be soft and sticky). Sprinkle dough lightly with 2 to 3 teaspoons flour; knead into dough. Shape into 2 (8x2-inch) logs with floured hands. Place 3 to 4 inches apart onto greased cookie sheet; flatten tops slightly. Combine egg white and water; brush over top of biscotti. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until lightly browned and firm to the touch. Let cool on cookie sheet 15 minutes.

Reduce oven temperature to 300°F. Cut logs diagonally into 1/2-inch slices with serrated knife; arrange slices, cut-side down, on cookie sheet. Bake for 16 to 20 minutes, turning once, or until golden brown. Remove to wire rack; cool completely.

Place chocolate chips and shortening in 1-quart saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth (2 to 4 minutes). Drizzle mixture over cooled biscotti.

We’re entering a new phase in our life as new parents – the dinnertime meltdown stage (or the “witching hour” as I like to call it). We rush home from daycare, singing “Wheels on the Bus” as many times as it takes to keep him entertained on the 10-minute car ride. It’s the same song and dance when we get home, while his daddy finishes up work and I’m hectically trying to empty the dishwasher, make dinner and keep our little guy from hiding the dog food between the couch cushions.
