White Chocolate Almond Biscotti

"This is a delicious Biscotti that is flavored with almond and drizzled with a White Chocolate Almond Drizzle."   

1 cup sugar
1 stick or 1/2 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
3 to 3-1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 ounces or 1/2 bag of white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together sugar and butter.  Add  eggs and extracts and mix until combined.  Stir in flour, baking powder and salt.  (I always start out adding only 3 cups of flour and checking to see how dry the dough is.  If the dough is too wet, then I add the other 1/2 cup of flour.)  Stir in white chocolate chips.

Divide the dough into two equal portions.  Roll out each portion and shape into 10x3 inch rectangles and place on an ungreased baking sheet.  Bake for 20 minutes.  Cool on baking sheet for 15 minutes.

Cut each rectangle crosswise into 1/2-inch slices.  Place slices cut sides down on cookie sheet.  Bake for approximately 15 minutes or until light golden brown.  Remove from the cookie sheet and allow to cool on wire rack.  Drizzle with White Chocolate Almond Drizzle (Recipe follows).

White Chocolate Almond Drizzle:
6 ounces or 1/2 bag of white chocolate chips
1 teaspoon shortening
1 teaspoon almond extract

Melt white chocolate chips with shortening in a saucepan on low heat.  Remove from heat and add extract.  Drizzle over cooled biscotti.
