Please join Mooshu Jenne and the FN Dish – Fall Fest at Food Network for a Virtual Cookie Swap. You can join us on Twitter with the hashtag #pullupachair. For the Virtual Cookie Swap,  I would love to share with you a simple Biscotti recipe. I love this recipe because it makes fantastic gifts. Just drizzle a little chocolate over the Biscotti, throw them in a bag, and put them in a basket or mug with a hot chocolate packet. For a little more oomph just add some chocolate covered spoons. biscotti




1 stick of butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2-3/4 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt


Preheat your oven to 375F.

In a large bowl cream the sugar and butter together until fluffy. Add the eggs and extract. Whisk in the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a separate bowl. Add it gradually to the large bowl with sugar mixture and beat well until a dough forms. If you would like to add in cranberries or chocolate chips you can before the next step.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and rub your hands with a little flour. Divide the dough in two and form each half into a log. Take the log and lay it on your baking sheet that is lined with parchment paper. Press the log to be about 4 inches wide and the length of the baking sheet. Bake until lightly browned and small cracks form on top, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven and slice on the diagonal in 1/2 inch slices; careful as they will still be hot. Place them flat on the backs and cook for another 5 minutes. After five minutes flip them over and cook for another five minutes. Cool and cover with melted chocolate or serve as is.
