Chocolate Covered Strawberry BiscottiSubmitted by: AUBURN0921
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 large eggs, room temperature
1 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups freeze dried strawberries*
Whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.
In a large bowl, beat eggs, adding sugar gradually, at medium speed until smooth and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. Beat in vanilla extract. At low speed or by hand, stir in flour mixture followed by the freeze dried strawberries (itís ok if they break up).
Drop spoonfuls of batter into two long lines on prepared baking sheet and, with well floured hands, shape the irregular lines of dough into two rectangular logs about 1/2 inch high. Length and width are your prerogative, and you can use more than one baking sheet, if necessary. Bake at 350F for 20 minutes, until logs are a light gold color and are fully set (they will spring back slightly when touched with a finger, like a cake).
Slice logs into 1/3 inch thick slices (1-1.5 cm) and lay flat (on their sides) on baking sheet.
Lower oven temperature to 300F. Bake sliced cookies for 15 minutes, flip them and bake for an additional 15 minutes. If cookies were sliced thickly and do not seem crisp, turn once again and bake for 10 more minutes.
Remove to a wire rack to cool. Store in an airtight container.
Makes about 4 dozen.
*Note: You can use about a cup of dried strawberries if you canít find freeze dried.

I'm confused, the picture shows them dipped in chocolate, the recipe is called chocolate covered strawberry biscottis, but I don't see any chocolate in the recipe or in the directions. These sound delicious, but am I missing something? Thanks! - 1/16/11

The chocolate is optional. White, Milk or best one for us, Dark chocolate. My apologies for leaving that part out. Also, do not like strawberries, you can use dried cranberries, dried blueberries or any dried berry of your choice.
