Reviews for Chai-Chocolate Chip Biscotti

It is like a chocolate chip cookie with a wonderful spiciness to it. the spice isnt bold but subtle! I dont like tea and had never used cardamon for anything before but i am glad i tried this recipe.
Some things i cone differently is that i only had half-n-half since my husband seems to LOVE to drink all the milk the mornign i plan to bake something :) I didnt put it in the fridge, the dough was somewhat sticky but i just put a lil' bitty bit of cooking oil on my hands and was able to easily manage the ONE 'loaf' i made. i suggest making two b/c although they taste great they look a little gimpy...i dont know what i was thinking not making lol. I made more than just 1/4 C. tea and used mebbe 1 Tablespoon extra as others reviewed this recipe said the dough is dry. If you are too cheap to buy a nice stand up mixer (i certainly am unfortunately) your arm may get a little worn out mixing the batter. after mixing the in the nuts and chocolate i suggest using your hands with oil on them to smush the loaves out.
This was a wonderful fall treat with the spices and chocolate/nut combination. I used Hickory Nuts (my secret weapon in most baked goods such as Chocolate Chip cookies and banana bread as well) and it turned out amazing. I found the dough to be a bit dry as well and had to add an extra tablespoon of tea and then it came together perfectly. I put in a dash of Gram Masala just for fun. I got huge raves on these and no one could figure out the spices and they simply begged me for the recipe from the first bite.
This get so wonderful & makes a great gift for Christmas too!
I found the dough too dry to incorporate all the flour so ended up adding 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil. (May be due to living at a high altitude) I also did not refrigerate the dough and it turned out beautifully. We loved this biscotti and will definately make it again. It truly tastes like chai tea.
I could not wait to make these biscotti! I love chai tea!!! This recipe has a great blend of spices! Perfect for the fall! I did use half whole wheat pastry flour and they turned out delicious !
