Chai Chocolate Chip Biscotti


Throughout the past week I whipped up 23 batches of biscotti – seven different flavors and multiple batches of each. I think there were some happy co-workers of both my husband and I who enjoyed these tasty creations. If you haven’t ever tried making biscotti it’s really quite simple. Check out my entire collection of recipes on my blog, starting first with my tried and true below.

Chai Chocolate Chip Biscotti
  • 2-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/4 cup strong brewed chai tea, room temperature
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

In a large bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. In a small bowl, whisk the tea, egg, egg white, milk and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients just until combined. Stir in walnuts and chocolate chips. Divide dough in half. Wrap each portion in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.

On a baking sheet coated with cooking spray, shape each half into a 10-by-2-inch rectangle. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Place pans on wire racks. When cool enough to handle, transfer to a cutting board; cut diagonally with a serrated knife into 3/4-inch slices. Place cut side down on baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Bake for 6 to 9 minutes on each side or until firm. Remove to wire racks. Store in an airtight container.

Yield: 2-1/2 dozen
