Try a del­i­cate Hojiblanca extra vir­gin olive oil.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all-pur­pose flour

  • 1 tea­spoon salt

  • 1 tea­spoon bak­ing pow­der

  • 2/3 cup mild-inten­sity extra vir­gin olive oil

  • 1 cup gran­u­lated sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 tea­spoon vanilla extract

  • 1 cup dark choco­late chips

  • 1/4 cup almond sliv­ers, crushed

Directions

  • Combine flour, salt and bak­ing soda together in a bowl, whisk to com­bine. In another bowl, com­bine EVOO, sugar, eggs and vanilla, whisk until blended and smooth.
  • Working in batches, sprin­kle the flour mix­ture into the wet, stir­ring to com­bine and cre­at­ing a thick cookie-dough con­sis­tency. Divide the dough in half, wrap and refrig­er­ate for 30 min­utes.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line a bak­ing sheet with parch­ment. Form the dough into even logs (about 3 inches wide by 6 inches long) and place on the sheet. Bake for 30 – 35 min­utes or until golden brown around the edges and firm through­out the cen­ter. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly (cool­ing down enough for you to han­dle). Reduce oven tem­per­a­ture to 300°F. 
  • Once cool, slice the logs, at an angle, into 1 inch thick cook­ies. Return the cook­ies to the bak­ing sheet and place back in the oven. Bake for 10 – 15 min­utes or until the cook­ies are crispy. Remove from the oven and let cool.
  • Once cool, melt choco­late using a dou­ble boiler (or microwave for incre­ments of 20 sec­onds until the choco­late has melted). Dip the bis­cotti into the choco­late, let­ting any excess drip off, and place on a wire rack or wax paper lined bak­ing sheet. Then sprin­kle with crushed almonds. Let the choco­late harden com­pletely before serv­ing.
