White Chocolate Blueberry Biscotti


For Holiday Baking Recipe #2, I'm sharing these White Chocolate Blueberry Biscotti. To me, biscotti is the perfect dessert. It's not too sweet, has a little crunch and it goes perfectly with a cup of coffee or tea. Each year, I try to make up some new combinations and have four new ones that I'll be sharing with you during the next few weeks. This one was the family's favorite one so I've decided to start here. I can't say I blame them, just look at these!  


White Chocolate Blueberry Biscotti
2 c. All-Purpose Flour
1 c. Granulated Sugar
1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
3 Large Eggs
1/2 c. Dried  Blueberries
1/2 c. White Chocolate (chips or chopped)
Cooking Spray


Directions:
1. In a bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda until well blended. 
2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and vanilla. 
3. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and mix well until all of the ingredients have been incorporated.  
4. Next, fold in the blueberries and chocolate. 
5. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until the dough is no longer sticky, then form two, 12” long log shapes and flatten down so that it is no higher than 1”. 
6. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray, add the dough and bake at 325° F for 30 minutes.  
7. Remove from oven and let cool, then slice diagonally into 1/2" thick slices and put them back on the baking sheet. 
8. Bake an additional 8-10 minutes per side, then remove from the oven. Let cool and allow to harden before serving. Makes 2 1/2 dz.


Enjoy!


The dough will be a little sticky before turning it onto a floured board, so I prefer to use a large mixing bowl and wooden spoon rather than my standing mixer to mix the batter. It makes for easier cleanup!
