Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F.

  • 3
    Shape half of dough at a time into rectangle, 10x3 inches, on ungreased cookie sheet.

  • 5
    Cut crosswise into 1/2-inch slices. Place cut sides down on cookie sheet. Bake about 15 minutes, turning once, until crisp and light brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. Cool completely on wire rack.
  • 6
    Dip one end of each cookie into melted chocolate. Place on waxed paper until chocolate is firm.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Put a lid on it! Biscotti best retains its crispness when stored in a tightly covered container.
  • tip 2
    Instead of melting 2 ounces of semisweet chocolate, melt 1 ounce of semisweet and 1 ounce of white chocolate. Dip cookies in a bit of each, then swirl chocolate coatings with a toothpick for a marbled design.
