2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts, toasted
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 (1-ounce) square unsweetened chocolate, melted, cooled


1/4 cup real semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 teaspoons shortening
1/4 cup white baking chips


Heat oven to 350°F.

Combine flour, walnuts, baking powder, baking soda and salt in bowl; set aside.

Combine sugar and butter in another bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Add eggs and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed.  Add flour mixture; beat at low speed until well mixed.

Remove half of dough from bowl. Add melted chocolate to remaining dough in bowl. Beat at low speed until well mixed.

Divide chocolate dough and white dough each into two equal portions. Roll each portion on lightly floured surface into 6-inch log. Place 1 chocolate roll on top of 1 vanilla roll; shape into 10x1 1/2-inch log. Repeat with remaining dough logs.

Place each log 3 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 23-28 minutes or until set and lightly browned. Let cool on cookie sheet 15 minutes.

Reduce oven temperature to 300°F.

Cut logs diagonally into 1/2-inch slices with sharp serrated knife. Arrange slices on cookie sheet, cut-side down. Bake 14-18 minutes, turning once, or until golden brown and crisp. Place onto cooling rack.  Cool completely.

Melt chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon shortening in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Repeat with white baking chips and remaining shortening. Drizzle over biscotti.

Recipe Tip

- Biscotti cookies can also be plain rather than drizzled with chocolate.

- A tall glass decanter is the perfect container to place these holiday biscotti in for a special gift to a friend. Tie a colorful ribbon on top for a creative "touch."

Recipe Comments & Reviews

These are wonderful and beautiful but I didn't add the nuts and I put mini chocolate chips in the bottom chocolate half of the cookie. I roll them out with floured hands and flour on my board. The dough is sticky without the nuts. They are beautiful and people think they are better than at a bakery. Great holiday gift.
Great looking and great tasting - these are always a hit with friends and family. The dough is easier to shape into logs if first refrigerated until firm.
