Chocolate Pecan Biscotti

Total time:  1 hour.

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup pecans
2 eggs
1 stick butter, softened
1/4 cup baking cocoa
1/2 cup chocolate chips, melted
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350.

Set aside your melted chocolate to cool slightly. It should be a little above room temperature before you add it to the dough.

Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a small mixing bowl, set aside.

Beat sugar and softened butter until smooth. Add eggs, cocoa and vanilla, beat until smooth. Add flour mixture to egg mixture and mix until just blended. Fold in pecans.

Divide dough into two pieces. Form into long flat loaves about 1/2 inch tall and 12-15 inches long. Place the loaves 3-4 inches apart on a prepared or non-stick baking sheet.

Bake for 30 minutes or until dark brown. Let cool for 10-15 minutes (or until you can handle the loaves without burning yourself) on a cooling rack or cutting board.

With a serrated or extremely sharp kitchen knife, cut diagonally into 1/2 inch thick slices. Lay the slices flat on the baking sheet.

Bake for 15-18 minutes, turning over once. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Makes about 2 dozen.

I used quartered pecans.
