GBBO: White Chocolate Biscotti

Week two of the Great British Bake Off is one area which I don't have massive amounts of experience in: biscuits. I've actually only ever made biscuits three times including this one, so I think I need some more practice. This time around, I decided to make biscotti. And I put white chocolate in because I love it, and you can barely get white chocolate flavoured things without gross cranberry. Anyway, on to the recipe.

You will need: 

300g flour
300g caster sugar
1/2 a teaspoon of baking powder
3 eggs
200g White chocolate

1. Preheat the oven to 170C/gas 3.

2. Put the flour, sugar and baking powder into a bowl and mix. Slowly add the eggs and beat to form a firm dough. Sprinkle the chocolate chips into the dough and mix until combined.

3. Turn out the dough onto a floured top, knead for about a minute and then cut the dough into two. Shape each piece into a log. Set apart on a tray covered with baking paper, and bake for 25 minutes. Leave to cool slightly.

4. Take one of the logs and slice on a slight diagonal. Place the slices face down and bake for a further 5 minutes. Turn the slices over and do the same on the other side. Leave to cool and then repeat on the other log.

I hope you enjoyed this recipe, see you next week.
