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
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
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."
