Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, sugar, and baking powder in a large bowl. Combine rind, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, extract, oil, and eggs, and add to flour mixture, stirring until well-blended (dough will be dry and crumbly). Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly 7 to 8 times. Divide dough in half. Shape each portion into an 8-inch-long roll. Place rolls 6 inches apart on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; flatten each roll to 1-inch thickness. Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes. Remove the rolls from baking sheet; cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack. Cut each roll diagonally into 15 (1/2-inch) slices. Place the slices, cut sides down, on baking sheet. Reduce oven temperature to 325°F; bake for 10 minutes. Turn cookies over; bake an additional 10 minutes (the cookies will be slightly soft in center but will harden as they cool). Remove from baking sheet, and cool completely on wire rack. Combine 1 tablespoon lemon juice and powdered sugar, and drizzle over the biscotti. Hints: dough is really sticky, so use a good heaping of flour for the kneading. Takes about 1.5 hours from start to finish.

Milk Chocolate Biscotti Source: www.nickmalgieri.com Healthy Units: 2 per biscotti Servings: 5 dozen Posted by: diAne Date: January 10, 2005 My Notes: A low point chocolate fix. I didn't have 5 dozen; but even at 2 points per biscotti, I'm a happy camper! 1 cup sugar 1 1/2 cups chopped skinned hazelnuts or walnuts (I used walnuts) 1/2 cup alkalized (Dutch process) cocoa powder 8 ounces milk chocolate, cut into 1/4-inch pieces (I used a 6 oz. bar) 2 cups all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1 pinch of salt 4 large eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Set a rack in the middle level of the oven and preheat to 325 degrees. Cover 2 large cookie sheets or jelly roll pans with parchment or foil and set aside. Place the sugar, nuts, cocoa, and milk chocolate in the food processor and pulse until finely ground. Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt and sift into a mixing bowl. Stir in the ground mixture. Whisk the eggs and vanilla and stir into the flour mixture to form a dough. On a lightly floured surface, press dough together. Divide dough in half and roll each half into a log the length of the pans you are using (14 to 18 inches). Place each log on a pan and flatten slightly. (If the dough is very soft, use a spatula to transfer it to the pan.) Bake until well risen and firm, about 30 minutes. Cool the logs on the pans. After the logs have cooled, detach from paper and slice them about 1/2-inch thick with a sharp serrated knife. Place back on paper-lined pans, cut side down, and bake again until dry and crisp, about 20 minutes. Cool on pans and store in a tin or plastic container with a tightfitting lid.

Banana Bread Biscotti Source: CLBB posted by Zackzboo (from “One Smart Cookie”) HUs: 1 Serves: 24 Posted by: Kate (KateWD) September 12, 2005 I loved the combination of banana, chocolate and nuts in this biscotti. The recipe suggests adding 1/2 cup of chocolate chips in addition to the 1/2 cup of nuts, but I thought that would be too much, 1/4 cup of each seemed to be the perfect amount. HUs were figured with my changes in parentheses. 1 3/4 cups flour (I used WW pastry flour) 1/2 cup sugar (I used splenda) 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup mashed ripe banana 1 T canola oil (I used ff plain yogurt) 1 large egg 1 teaspoon vanilla 1/2 chopped walnuts or pecans (I used 1/4 cup pecans and 1/4 min chocolate chips) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; set aside. In a large bowl, combine banana, oil, egg and vanilla, and mix until well blended. Add the flour mixture and walnuts to the banana mixture and stir just until combined. If the mixture seems dry, use your hands to mix. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, divide in half and shape each piece into an 8-inch log. Place the logs 2-3 inches apart on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with nonstick spray and flatten each into a rectangle that is about 3 inches wide. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until firm and cracked on top. Transfer to wire rack to cool for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temp to 275 degrees. Place logs on a cutting board, trim the ends and cut each diagonally into 1/2" to 3/4" thick slices. Place biscotti cut side down on the cookie sheet. Return them to the oven for 20 minutes, then flip them over and bake for another 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool. NOTES: Banana Chocolate Chip Biscotti: Add 1/2 cup chocolate chips along with the walnuts.

I got about 30 biscotti; some a little wider than 1/2-inch; however, there was no significant points change. IF you reduce the cashews to 1/2 cup and get a yield of 32 biscotti - the HUs drop to 1.5 per biscotti. 1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour 3/4 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon grated whole nutmeg 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon ground mace 3/4 cup sugar 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 2 large eggs 3/4 cup chopped dry-roasted cashews 3/4 cup golden raisins Cooking spray Preheat oven to 300°. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine the flour and the next 4 ingredients (flour through mace) in a large bowl. Beat the sugar, vanilla, and eggs with a mixer in a large bowl at medium speed until thick. Stir in the flour mixture, cashews, and raisins. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead lightly 7 or 8 times. Shape dough into a 12-inch roll. Place roll on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray, and pat to 1-inch thickness. Bake at 300° for 45 minutes. Cool 10 minutes on a wire rack. Cut roll diagonally into 24 (1/2-inch) slices; stand the slices upright on baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes (the cookies will be slightly soft in center but will harden as they cool).

Date Hazelnut Chocolate Biscotti Source: "Moosewood Restaurant Book of Desserts" HU: 1.3 Servings: 42 Posted by: CJMartin717 (Cindy) March 12, 2006 Reviewers comments: I replaced half of sugar with Splenda, 1/2 cup of flour with whole wheat flour, and decreased both dates and chocolate chips from 1/2 cup each to 1/3 cup each. I also got 42 biscotti and the recipe yield stated 24 which would be 96 calories, 4 g fat, 1 g fiber = 2 HUs each. 1/2 cup hazelnuts 1/4 cup light butter -- room temperature 1/3 cup sugar 1/3 cup Splenda 2 large eggs 1 tablespoon brandy 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Preheat the oven to 325°F. Spread the hazelnuts on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for about 10 minutes, until fragrant. Allow the nuts to cool for a few minutes and then rub them in a dry towel to remove most of the skins. Coarsely chop and set aside. Turn the oven up to 350°F and lightly coat a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Cream the butter, sugar, and Splenda until light and blended. Beat in the eggs, brandy, and vanilla. Sift in the baking powder, salt, and flours and mix well. Stir in the chopped nuts, dates and chocolate chips. Using lightly floured hands, form the dough into 2 logs about 3 inches in diameter. Pat the logs to an even thickness. Bake 30-35 minutes or until logs are set and firm. Cool on a rack for 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 325°F. Using a sharp knife and cutting on the diagonal, slice the logs into pieces about 1/2-inch thick. Place cut side down on the baking sheet and bake for another 2530 minutes until firm and lightly browned. Store in an airtight container.

I increased the almond extract, added vanilla, and also added some mini chocolate chips. The points are calculated w/o the added chocolate chips. 2 eggs 1 egg white 1/4 cup sugar 1/4 teaspoon almond extract (I used 1 teaspoon almond extract and 1 teaspoon vanilla) 2-1/3 cups all-purpose flour 3/4 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup sugar 1/4 cup chocolate wafer crumbs 1 (2-oz) package slivered almonds, coarsely chopped and toasted Beat eggs and egg white at high speed of an electric mixer 3 minutes.

Tuscan Almond Biscotti Source: Cooking Light, August 2006 Healthy Units: 2 Core: No Servings: 24 (serving size: 1 biscotti) Posted by: ejwyatt (Emily) Date: August 29, 2006 CL Notes: These crunchy, light cookies are a specialty of Prato, a city in Tuscany, where they are called cantucci. They are typically served with a glass of vin santo, a sweet dessert wine, at meal's end. The biscotti keep in airtight tins for up to a week. Em’s Notes: I was not going to post this recipe because we have a couple of almond biscotti in the comp already. I really liked these and this is the almond biscotti recipe that I will be using going forward, so I changed my mind. I made some changes to the recipe, but they did not change the point value. 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour (about 7 3/4 ounces) [I used 1 C white flour and 3/4 C whole wheat pastry flour] 1 cup sugar [I used 1/2 C sugar and 1/2 C Splenda] 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup whole almonds, toasted 2 large eggs 1/2 teaspoon almond extract Cooking spray Preheat oven to 375°. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Place almonds in a food processor; pulse 10 times. Stir nuts into flour mixture. Combine eggs and extract, stirring well with a whisk. Add egg mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until blended (dough will be crumbly). Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly 7 or 8 times. Divide dough into 2 equal portions. Shape each portion into a 6-inch-long roll. Place the rolls 6 inches apart on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray, and pat to 1inch thickness. Bake at 375° for 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool for 5 minutes on a wire rack. Cut each roll crosswise into 12 (1/2-inch) slices. Stand slices upright on baking sheet. Bake 14 minutes (the cookies will be slightly soft in the center but will harden as they cool). Remove from baking sheet, and cool completely on a wire rack.

Snickerdoodle Biscotti Source: Cooking Light, November 2000 Healthy Units: 1.5 (1 with my changes) Servings: 30 Core: No Posted by: ejwyatt (Emily) Date: December 3, 2006 Em’s Notes: I always stand my biscotti up for the second bake so that I don’t have to turn them over. I reduced the time for the 2nd bake to 18 minutes. These are very similar to the Cinnamon Biscotti that I posted, but I like these better. The cinnamon sugar stays on the biscotti because of the egg white. Nutritionals from original recipe and do not reflect my changes. 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour (I used 1 1/2 cup all-purpose and 1 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour) 1 cup sugar (I used 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup Splenda) 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon canola oil 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 3 large eggs Cooking spray 2 tablespoons sugar 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1 large egg white Preheat oven to 350. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Combine oil, vanilla, and eggs; add to flour mixture, stirring until well-blended (dough will be dry and crumbly). Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead lightly 7 to 8 times. Divide dough in half. Shape each portion into an 8-inch-long roll. Place rolls 6 inches apart on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray, and flatten each roll to 1-inch thickness. Combine 2 Tablespoons sugar and cinnamon. Gently brush tops of rolls with egg white, and sprinkle with the cinnamon mixture. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Remove rolls from baking sheet; cool 10 minutes on a wire rack. Cut each roll diagonally into 15 (1/2-inch slices). Place the slices, cut sides down, on baking sheet. Reduce oven temperature to 325; bake 10 minutes. Turn cookies over, and bake an additional 10 minutes (the cookies will be slightly soft in the center but will harden as they cool).

Brownie Alpine Biscotti Source: adapted from Taste of Home Christmas Cookies & Candies HU: 1.5 per biscotti Servings: 50 Posted by: CJMartin717 (Cindy) 12/8/06 Cindy's Notes: I replaced egg whites with Egg Beaters, added some extra whole wheat pastry flour, and added white chocolate chips to the batter rather than melt them and drizzle the melted chocolate over the baked biscotti. The dough is VERY STICKY - not easy to work with; but the results are worth it. 1 package Pillsbury Traditional Fudge Brownie Mix 3/4 cup ground almonds 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 cup whole wheat flour -- pastry 3/4 teaspoon baking powder 1 large egg 1/2 cup Egg Beaters® 99% egg substitute 1 teaspoon almond extract 2 1/2 ounces white chocolate chips In a large bowl, combine dry brownie mix, ground almonds, flours, and baking powder. In a small bowl, whisk egg with Egg Beaters and almond extract. Add to brownie mixture and stir until combined. Stir in white chocolate chips. Divide dough into thirds. Using greased hands, transfer dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper and sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Shape each portion of dough into a 7x3 1/2-inch rectangle. Pat into shape. Bake at 350°F for 24 minutes (I baked mine closer to 35 minutes). Remove from oven and cool 5-10 minutes. Transfer dough to a cutting board and cut diagonally into 3/4-inch slices. Return to baking pan (I stand mine up) and bake another 15 minutes or until firm. I left mine in the oven for a few more minutes and the bottom got a little too brown - watch carefully.

Cherry Eggnog Biscotti Source: posted “not for comp” by Maria HU: 2.1 (1.6 with my changes) Servings: 36 Posted by: CJMartin717 (Cindy) 12-14-06 Cindy’s Note: My new favorite biscotti (for now). This dough was very easy to work with. I had to bake the biscotti about 5 minutes longer for both the first and second bakings. I stand the biscotti up for the second baking rather than lay them flat and turn them over half way through. Cookie Ingredients: 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 3/4 cup sugar 2 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon salt (I used 3/4 teaspoon) 3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (I used 1 teaspoon) 6 tablespoons butter -- softened (I used 3 Tbsp butter and 3 Tbsp light butter) 3 whole eggs (I used 1/4 cup Egg Beaters and 2 large eggs) 1 teaspoon rum extract 1 cup dried cherries -- chopped (I used cherryflavored Craisins – does not affect HUs) Glaze Ingredients: (I omitted the glaze.) 1 cup powdered sugar 1/2 teaspoon rum extract 1 tablespoon milk -- (1 to 2)

Heat oven to 325°F. Line ungreased cookie sheet with parchment paper. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and nutmeg in large bowl. Add butter; beat at low speed until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Increase speed to medium; add eggs and 1 teaspoon rum extract. Beat until well mixed. Stir in cherries by hand. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface; knead 10 to 15 times with lightly floured hands. Divide dough in half; roll each half into 14-inch log. Place logs 3 inches apart onto prepared baking sheet; flatten each log to about 2 inches wide. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until set. Cool 10 minutes on cooling rack covered with parchment paper. Reduce oven temperature to 275°F. Remove logs from parchment; cut into 3/4-inch diagonal slices. Lay slices onto same cookie sheet, cut-side down. Bake for 13 minutes. Turn over; continue baking an additional 12 to 14 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from cookie sheet. Cool completely. Combine powdered sugar, 1/2 teaspoon rum extract and enough milk for desired consistency. Drizzle glaze over cooled biscotti.

Gingerbread Biscotti Source: unknown, adapted from one Laura posted Not For Comp HU: 1.4 Servings: 38 Posted by: CJMartin717 (Cindy) September 3, 2007 Cindy's Notes: Watch the first baking time - my biscotti got a little crispier on the bottom than I preferred. I used dried currants instead of the raisins originally called for. 1/4 cup light butter -- room temp 3/4 cup light brown sugar -- packed 2 large eggs 1/4 cup molasses 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/8 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 teaspoons ginger 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1/2 cup walnuts -- chopped 1/2 cup dried currants Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, beat together butter and sugar with an electric mixer at medium speed. Beat in eggs, then blend in molasses. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices. Blend until smooth. Stir in nuts and raisins. Divide dough in half in bowl and turn onto a flour board (dough will be sticky). (NOTE: Biscotti dough is very sticky, so this is the only tricky part. You can coat your hands with nonstick spray to help in shaping the logs. I coat the dough with a light dusting of flour before working with it to make it easier to handle.) Shape each half into a log about 3" wide and 1" high. Place side by side on a large baking sheet, at least 2" apart. Bake logs for 35-40 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven. Lower oven temperature to 300 degrees. Cool logs for 10 minutes on baking sheet, then transfer to a cutting board. With a serrated knife, cut each log into 3/4" diagonal slices. Stand slices on baking sheet and return to oven to toast. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool. Per Serving: 70 Calories; 2g Fat (23.7% calories from fat); 2g Protein; 12g Carbohydrate; 1g Dietary Fiber; 12mg Cholesterol; 56mg Sodium.

Pumpkin Biscotti Source: Unknown HU: 3 Core: No Servings: 15 Posted by: JJ (Dibranchia) Date: 10/31/2007 2 1/2 cups flour 1 cup sugar 1 tsp baking powder 1 tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp nutmeg pinch ginger pinch cloves pinch salt 2 eggs 1/2 cup pumpkin puree 1 tsp vanilla extract Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Whisk dry ingredients together (I do this instead of sifting). Whisk wet ingredients together. Mix both ingredients together - dough will be crumbly (and I mean CRUMBLY). Lightly knead together. Form into a log 15-20" by 6-7" relatively flat about 1/2" high. Bake 22-30 minutes until center is firm to the touch. Turn oven to 300 and let cool 15 minutes. Cut with a serrated knife into 1" pieces. Place upright on baking sheet (just as you cut them basically) and bake 15-20 minutes. Cool completely. Makes about 15. Notes: I added 1/4 cup of walnuts, crushed and it didn't change the HUs. Next time I want to add some chocolate chips, but I'll have to refigure the HU's. Why chocolate. Well, because it's chocolate. ;)

Ginger Biscotti Source: Baker’s Catalog E-mail HU: 1 Servings: 36 Posted by: Emily (EJWyatt) November 19, 2007 NOTES : These ginger-packed American-style biscotti (gently crisp, rather than rock-hard and dense) are a perfect light dessert or lunchbox treat. This recipe comes from the biscotti chapter of The King Arthur Flour Cookie Companion, featuring over 500 pages of delicious recipes for cookies, plus comprehensive sections on tools, ingredients, techniques, and hundreds of helpful how-to illustrations. Em’s Notes: This was a VERY wet, sticky dough. Don’t try to form a log. Just follow the instructions and spoon dough out on cookie sheet and shape with wet hands. These bake up beautifully. 6 tablespoons light butter -- (3 ounces) 2/3 cup brown sugar -- (5 ounces) packed 1/4 teaspoon salt 4 teaspoons ground ginger 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 2 large eggs 1 cup King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour -- (8 1/2 ounces) 1 cup whole wheat flour 1 cup finely diced crystallized ginger -- (6 1/2 ounces) Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease (or line with parchment) one large (about 18 x 13inch) baking sheet. In a medium-sized bowl, beat the butter, sugar, salt, spices, vanilla, and baking powder until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Beat in the eggs; the batter may look slightly curdled. At low speed of your mixer, add the flour and crystallized ginger, stirring until smooth; the dough will be quite soft and sticky, but should hold its shape when you drop it from a spoon. Transfer the dough to the prepared baking sheet, and shape it into a rough log about 14" long. It will be about 2 1/2" wide, and about 3/4" thick. Using your wet fingers, smooth the top and sides of the log. Bake the dough for 25 minutes. Remove it from the oven, and allow it to cool on the pan anywhere from 5 to 25 minutes; just work it into the schedule of whatever else you’re doing in the kitchen. Using a spray bottle filled with room-temperature water, lightly but thoroughly spritz the log, making sure to cover the sides as well as the top. Softening the crust just this little bit will make slicing the biscotti much easier. Reduce the oven temperature to 325°F. Wait another 5 minutes, then use a serrated knife to cut the log into 1/2" to 3/4" slices. Cut at a 45° angle, for long biscotti; cut crosswise slices, for shorter biscotti. As you’re slicing, be 31

sure to cut straight up and down, perpendicular to the pan; if you cut unevenly, biscotti may be thicker at the top than the bottom, and they’ll topple over during their second bake. Set the biscotti on edge on the prepared baking sheet. Return the biscotti to the oven, and bake them for 25 to 30 minutes, till they feel very dry. They’ll still feel a tiny bit moist in the very center, if you break off a piece; but they’ll continue to dry out as they cool. Remove the biscotti from the oven, and transfer them to a rack to cool. Once they’re cool, store airtight, to preserve their texture. If biscotti aren’t as crunchy as you’d like (and the weather is dry), store them uncovered, overnight, to continue drying. Biscotti can be stored at room temperature for one week; for longer storage, wrap airtight and freeze. Yield: about 16 large (about 5 ½" long) biscotti. Variation: For smaller biscotti, shape the dough into two 12" logs, about 2" wide. Bake as directed above. Yield: about 3 dozen mini-biscotti.

Fig, Hazelnut, and White Chocolate Biscotti Source: Weight Watchers (not sure which issue – it was a distributed by WW leader) Healthy Units: 1 Servings: 52 Posted by "3BrowCat" (Diane Jones) Date: 11/24/2007 Note: To save time, look for chopped hazelnuts in the baking aisle of the supermarket. They will still need to be tasted, but you won’t have to remove the skins. My shortcut: I used White Chocolate Chips. 1/2 cup hazelnuts 1/2 cup sugar 2 large eggs 2 teaspoons grated orange zest 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 3/4 cups whole-wheat pastry flour 3/4 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup dried figs, stemmed and finely chopped 4 ounces white chocolate, chopped into 1/4 inch pieces Place the oven racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven & preheat the oven to 300°F. Spread the hazelnuts on a baking sheet. Bake until toasted, about 15 minutes. Wrap the hot hazelnuts in a clean kitchen towel and rub the nuts together to remove as much of the skins as possible. Let the nuts cool, then coarsely chop; set aside. With an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the sugar, eggs, orange zest, and vanilla in a large bowl until slightly thickened, about 1 minute. Reduce the speed to low. Add the pastry flour, baking soda, and salt; beat until blended. Stir in the figs, chocolate, and hazelnuts. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray. Generously flour a work surface. Divide the dough in half. Roll each half in the flour to coat, then roll each piece of dough into a 13-inch-long log (the dough will be soft) Transfer the logs to the baking sheet about 4 inches apart. Bake until firm to the touch, about 30 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheet on a rack about 30 minutes. With a spatula, loosen each log from the baking sheet. With a serrated knife, cut each log crosswise into 1/2 –inch-thick slices, making a total of 52 slices. Stand the slices on 2 baking sheets. Bake until dry, about 20 minutes, rotating the baking sheets halfway through the baking. Let cool completely on racks.

Toffee Biscotti Source: Cooking Light Hus: 2 Serves: 30 Posted by: Kate (KateWD) December 17, 2007 Notes: My only change was to use whole wheat pastry flour. My dough was not dry and crumbly, it was wet and sticky but the biscotti came out fine. 2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar 2 teaspoons baking powder 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 3 large eggs Cooking spray 1/2 cup almond toffee bits (such as Hershey's Heath Bits O'Brickle) 1/2 cup granulated sugar Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine the flour, granulated sugar, toffee bits, brown sugar, and baking powder in a large bowl. Combine vegetable oil, vanilla, and eggs; add to flour mixture, stirring until well-blended (dough will be dry and crumbly). Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead lightly 7 to 8 times. Divide dough in half. Shape each portion into an 8-inch-long roll. Place rolls 6 inches apart on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray, and flatten each roll to 1-inch thickness. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Remove rolls from baking sheet; cool 10 minutes on a wire rack. Cut each roll diagonally into 15 (1/2-inch) slices. Place slices, cut sides down, on baking sheet. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees; bake 10 minutes. Turn cookies over; bake an additional 10 minutes (cookies will be slightly soft in center but will harden as they cool). Remove from baking sheet; cool completely on wire rack.

Amaretto Biscotti adapted from The New Good Cake Book Servings: 40 Posted by: CJMartin717 (Cindy) 11/23/08 Cindy's Comments: The original recipe called for 1 cup of butter, 3 cups all-purpose flour and 1 cup of whole almonds (not pre-chopped) and made 20 very large biscotti. This dough was easy to shape but baked into a loaf that was crumbly - a few slices fell apart. The flavor is fantastic. 1/4 cup butter -- softened 1/4 cup light butter 2/3 cup sugar 2 large eggs 2 tablespoons amaretto 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour 2 cups unbleached flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 3/4 cup sliced almonds -- blanched or toasted Preheat oven to 325 F. Grease a large baking sheet. In a large bowl, cream the butter or margarine with the sugar until the sugar is fully incorporated. Beat in the eggs, then the Amaretto and vanilla. In another bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to the creamed mixture, stirring until the dry ingredients are incorporated. The dough will be quite stiff. Stir in the almonds. On the prepared baking sheet, form the dough into two logs, each about 8x2-1/2 inches. Bake the logs for 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove the baking sheet from the oven, and reduce the oven temperature to 300 F. Cut each log on the diagonal into 10 slices. (I cut each log into 20 slices.) Lay the slices on their side and bake the biscotti for 15 minutes. Turn the slices over and bake another 15 minutes. (I stood the slices upright and baked them for 30 minutes rather than lay flat and turn them over.) Transfer to a rack to cool.

White Chocolate Cherry Biscotti adapted from The New Good Cake Book Servings: 50 Posted by CJMartin717 (Cindy) 11/23/08 Cindy's Comments : The only ingredient change I made was to substitute a portion of the flour with whole wheat pastry flour. I used a Lindt White Chocolate-Coconut bar. This dough was very wet. I used wet fingers to shape the loaves. The dough spread and at the recommended 20 servings, these would have been gigantic biscotti. I sliced the loaves in half lengthwise and then cross-wise on the diagonal. I would recommend forming four thinner loaves to start with. You can taste the honey - so, use your favorite flavor. I stood these on end to bake the slices; but, I would recommend the more traditional step (lay on sides and flip) as they started to get dark on the bottom. 2 large eggs 2/3 cup honey 1/3 cup vegetable oil 2 tablespoons water 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 1/2 cups unbleached flour 3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 cup dried cherries 2 ounces white chocolate -- coarsely chopped

Preheat the oven to 325 F. Grease a large baking pan. (I used nonstick cooking spray.) In a large bowl, beat the eggs. Gradually beat in the honey until the mixture is thick. Beat in the vegetable oil, then the water and vanilla. In another bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Add to the honey mixture, stirring until the dry ingredients are incorporated. Stir in the cherries and white chocolate. On the prepared baking sheet, form the dough into two logs, each about 8x3-inches. Bake the logs for 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove the baking sheet and reduce the oven temperature to 300 F. Cut each log on the diagonal into 10 slices. Lay the slices on their side and bake for 10 minutes. Turn the slices over and bake another 10 minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool.
