Cherry Garcia Biscotti

RG

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch freshly grated nutmeg
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup dried Bing cherries, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks or chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and nutmeg in a medium-size bowl.
  3. In a large bowl, beat eggs, adding sugar gradually, at medium speed until smooth and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. At low speed or by hand, stir in flour mixture followed by cherries and chocolate. Drop spoonsful of batter into long lines on prepared baking sheet and, with well floured hands, shape the irregular lines into rectangular logs about 1/2 inch high.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes, until logs are a light gold color and are fully set (they will spring back slightly when touched with a finger).
  5. Slice logs into 1/3-1/2 inch thick slices (1-1.5 cm) and lay flat on their sides on baking sheet.
  6. Lower oven temperature to 300 degrees F. Bake sliced cookies for 15 minutes, flip them and bake for an additional 15 minutes. If cookies are not firm, depending on how thickly they were sliced, turn again and bake for 10 more minutes.
  7. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
  8. Store in an airtight container.

Makes 4 dozen.
