Chocolate Pistachio Biscotti
6 T. unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for baking
2 C. all-purpose flour, plus more for baking sheet
1/2 C. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
1 C. sugar
2 large eggs
1 C. shelled pistachio nuts
1/2 C. chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350º F. Butter and flour a baking sheet; set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. In
the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, cream butter and
sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs; beat until well combined, scraping down
sides of bowl if necessary. Add flour mixture, and stir to form a stiff dough.
Stir in pistachios and chocolate chips.
Transfer dough to prepared baking sheet; form into a slightly flattened log,
about 12 by 4 inches. Bake until slightly firm, about 25 minutes. Cool on a wire
rack for about 5 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 300º F.
On a cutting board, using a sharp serrated knife, cut biscotti diagonally into
1-inch-thick slices. Arrange biscotti, cut sides down, on baking sheet, and bake
until crisp but still slightly soft in the center, about 8 minutes.
