3 1/2 dozen (serving size: 1 biscotto)

A drizzle of white chocolate lends these biscotti holiday flair. For contrast, melt semisweet chocolate to drizzle over half the batch.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Place first 6 ingredients in a large bowl, and beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended.

Step 3

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, instant coffee granules, cocoa, baking soda, ground cinnamon, salt, and ground nutmeg; gradually add to sugar mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in the cashews. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly 7 times. Divide dough in half. Shape each portion into a 12-inch-long roll. Place rolls on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; pat to 3/4-inch thickness. Sprinkle rolls evenly with 1 tablespoon granulated sugar.

Step 4

Bake at 350° for 22 minutes. Remove rolls from baking sheet; cool 10 minutes on a wire rack. Cut each roll diagonally into 21 (1/2-inch) slices. Carefully stand slices upright on baking sheet. Reduce oven temperature to 325°; bake 20 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.

Step 5

Place chocolate in a small heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; microwave at high 1 minute or until the chocolate is soft. Knead bag until smooth. Snip a tiny hole in corner of bag; drizzle chocolate over biscotti.

Great Coffee Cookie

This is an awesome recipe for biscotti! I'm making it for my secret santa and it's sure to please! Very easy to make! I did follow the recipe on everything except I only used 3 tablespoons of coffee crystals as recommended in a previous review!

This recipe is a big favorite in my family. I make it every year during the Christmas for us to enjoy with our hot chocolate or coffee. I also wrap them in gift bags and give away as teacher gifts or hostess gifts at parties. I make it exactly how the recipe says. However this year I just baked it 10 min at 320 at the end and it was perfect. I have a different oven this year.

These are keepers. Very easy to make and very rewarding. I dipped bottoms in dark chocolate; if you give some out beware! Everyone wants more.

Pretty good biscotti. I followed one of the other reviewers advice and did not use as much coffee granuals as are called for - only 3 tablespoons. I also used parchment paper to line the cookie sheet and it worked great. I rubbed a little canola oil onto my hands before rolling the dough and did not have a problem with the dough sticking to my hands. I will make this recipe again.
