Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

1/2 cup margarine
1-1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
3 ounces white chocolate, melted
1/4 cup orange juice
1 teaspoon almond extract
2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2-3/4 cups white flour
1 teaspoon salt
3 ounces white chips
3/4 cup toasted almonds, chopped
3/4 cup dried fruit (mixed glace)

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Beat margarine until soft. Beat in sugar and eggs. Add melted white chocolate, juice and extract until combined. Fold in remaining ingredients. The dough will be sticky. Form dough into logs about 14 inches long and place 3 inches apart. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes until golden brown. Lower oven temperature to 325 degrees. Remove biscotti from oven and let cool 5 minutes before slicing diagonally. Return to oven and toast on each side for 5 to 10 minutes. Store in air-tight containers. Note: The dried mixed glace fruit is the type used for fruit cake.
