As requested by busywend, here they are...I will post the regular non-chocolate ones in a moment. Chocolate Almond Biscottis 1/2 Cup butter softened (1 stick) 1 Cup Sugar 2 Eggs 1 tsp almond extract 2 1/4 Cups all purpose flour 1/4 Cup cocoa powder 1 tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp salt 1 Cup almonds, sliced Chocolate Glaze 1 Cup semi-sweet chocolate chips 1 Tbs shortening (do not use butter, margarine or oil) Heat oven to 350F. Beat butter and sugar until blended. Add eggs and almond extract; beat well. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until smooth. (Dough will be thick.) Stir in almonds using wooden spoon. Shape dough into two 11-inch-long rolls. Place rolls 3 to 4 inches apart on large ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 30 minutes or until rolls are set. Remove from oven; cool on cookie sheet 15 minutes. Using serrated knife, cut rolls diagonally using sawing motion, into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Arrange slices, cut sides down, close together on cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 9 minutes. Turn slices over; bake an additional 8 to 9 minutes; cool on cookie sheet on wire rack. Prepare Chocolate Glaze. Place 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon shortening (do no t use butter, margarine or oil) into small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH (100%) 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until smooth when stirred. Makes about 1 cup glaze. Dip end of each biscotti in glaze or drizzle over entire cookie. Garnish with additional almonds, if desired.
