Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 Cups Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 3 Eggs Room Temperature
  • 1 Stick Room Temperature Butter
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • Zest And Juice Of One Medium Navel Orange
  • 1 cup White chocolate chips
  • Royal Icing or White Betty Crocker Cookie Icing

Instructions

Make the Dough

  1. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar in a kitchen aid mixer until fluffy (about 2 or 3 mins).
  3. Add eggs one at a time, incorporating each one before adding the next.
  4. Add juice and zest and vanilla extract. Slowly and gently add flour mix to the wet stuff until just incorporated.
  5. Add white chocolate chips and stir for 30 seconds.
  6. Line a flat surface with cling wrap. Using a silicone spatula, pour the dough onto the cling wrap and gather it up into a ball. Refrigerate for up to an hour.

For The Biscotti

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Dust a flat clean surface with flour and place the dough ball on it. Cut the ball in half and roll each half out until it's 1-inch thick. It should be 12-18 inches long. Place the rolls on the cookie sheets.
  3. Put in the oven and bake until just starting to brown at the edges, about 30-35 minutes. Let cool for a 10 minutes on the baking sheets. While the biscotti logs are still warm, cut each log into 1/2-inch wide slices on the diagonal.
  4. Place the slices back on the baking sheets. Bake for 7 to 8 minutes on each side to crisp them up.
  5. Once cooled, either make royal icing or just use Betty Crocker cookie icing and top in stripes.
