3/4 cup sugar

2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1 tablespoon vanilla

2 to 3 teaspoons all-purpose flour

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F. Grease cookie sheet; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine 2 cups flour, walnuts, baking powder, baking soda and salt in bowl; set aside.

  3. STEP 3

    Beat sugar and eggs in another bowl at medium-high speed until thick and lemon-colored. Add butter and vanilla. Continue beating until well mixed. Beat at low speed, gradually adding flour mixture and scraping bowl often, until well mixed.

  4. STEP 4

    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 prepared cookie sheet; flatten tops slightly.

  5. STEP 5

    Combine egg white and water; brush over top of biscotti. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned and firm to the touch. Let cool 15 minutes on cookie sheet.

  6. STEP 6

    Reduce oven temperature to 300°F.

  7. STEP 7

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

  8. STEP 8

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