Yesterday I made three batches of the
Chocolate & pistachio biscotti
Seems I am a mother of biscotti lovers.

Nothing goes better with a steaming cup o f coffee than biscotti.
This chocolate and pistachio version will keep for weeks in an
airtight container… but may not last that long with all the family
1 Heat oven to 180 °C/fan 160 °C/gas 4. Sieve the flour, cocoa
powder and baking powder into a large mixing bowl. Stir in the sugar.
Add enough beaten egg to be able to mix well into a firm, but not
sticky, dough, (you may not need all the beaten egg). With floured
hands, knead in the pistachios.
2 Flatten the dough into a greased and lined 2 lb loaf tin. Bake for
25-30 mins until set. Leave to cool in the tin for 5 mins, then turn
out onto a wire rack.
3 Reduce the oven to 160 °C/fan 140 °C/gas 3. Using a bread knife,
cut the cooled loaf into 1 cm thick slices and lay flat on a baking
sheet. Return to the oven for 12-15 mins until crisp and dry. Cool
on a wire rack.
