I will admit that I thought this sounded like the strangest recipe
when I first read it, but after I made them I found out just how
GREAT they were!! I've made them for work and got so many compliments
and requests for the recipe that I thought I would pass them along. I
made just a couple adjustments to the original recipe that I received
from the 1st Travel's Choice Cookbook. But full credit goes to the
"Agate Cove Inn" in Mendocino, California, it is their Specialty
Recipe served at their Bed & Breakfast.
In a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients (first 7 ingreds)
and blend well.
In a small bowl, whisk together all liquids, add to dry ingredients
with mixer. You may want to add a few drops of coffee to get mixture
Add chocolate chips, walnuts and Craisins. Turn dough out onto a
well-floured board and form into 1/2" thick by 3-1/2"wide, flat logs--
cook on greased & floured cookie sheet at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Cook
until cake-like. Cool. **see NOTE #1**
Cut logs into 1/2" pieces, lay (cut-side down) flat on cookie sheet
and bake another 6-8 minutes at 300 degrees one side only. Then flip
over and bake on other side 6-8 minutes. Cool and serve. **see NOTE
**NOTE #1** I first covered sheet with foil, then greased / floured
that. It was much easier to remove the logs since they tend to stick
because of very low fat content.
**NOTE #2**after I cut into slices, I place them upright on a cooling
rack placed ON the cookie sheet and I bake them ONLY 1 more time...as
this bakes BOTH sides at once.
Makes approx. 32 Biscotti...recipe can be doubled easily
