Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter melted and cooled
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup Domino® Golden Sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 1 ¼ cup pecans finely chopped, divided
  • 1 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, kosher salt, and cinnamon.
  • In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together butter, eggs, Domino® Golden Sugar, and vanilla bean paste. Add half of flour mixture, then fold gently to combine.

  • Add remaining half of flour and 1 cup chopped pecans, then fold until just combined and some streaks of flour remain. Dough will be very sticky.

  • Dampen hands slightly with water. Divide dough evenly in two, then form each half into a rectangular log, about 8” x 3” long and about ¾” tall, making sure to leave about 4” of space between logs on baking sheet. Continue to wet hands as needed if dough begins to stick. Smooth sides and tops of logs.

  • Bake for 25 minutes, turning the baking sheet halfway through. Let cool 10-15 minutes, then transfer logs to a cutting board. Using a serrated knife, slice each log into 1” thick pieces.

  • Return biscotti to baking sheet, lining them up on their sides. Bake for an additional 25 minutes, flipping them over halfway through cooking. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  • When cool, place chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Melt in 15 second increments, stirring after each time, until melted and completely smooth.
  • Dip cooled biscotti in melted chocolate, allowing excess chocolate to drip off. Immediately sprinkle with remaining chopped pecans. Allow chocolate to harden, about 1 hour. Store in an airtight container and eat within 1 week.
