Mmmmore Biscotti

Blueberry Biscotti

I made this yesterday and this stuff is a HIT! Wow. I was intrigued by the recipe title, but thought...nah, too much work. Then I took a look at the ingredients and gave it a second chance. This biscotti is made from a blueberry muffin mix and is lightly crunchy and not as heavy as other biscotti I've made. This is perfect for someone on their first time out making biscotti.

Blueberry-White Morsels Biscotti

1 pkg. (18.25 to 18.9 oz.) blueberry muffin mix with can of blueberries
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted and cooled slightly
2 large eggs, slightly beaten
2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Premier White Morsels, divided

PREHEAT oven to 350º F. Grease 2 baking sheets. Drain blueberries; set aside.

COMBINE muffin mix, flour, butter and eggs just until combined in large bowl. Fold in 1 1/2 cups morsels and drained blueberries with floured hands. Shape half of the dough into a 12-inch-long roll (dough may be sticky). Place on a prepared cookie sheet; flatten slightly until about 2 inches wide. Repeat with remaining dough.

BAKE for about 25 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the centers comes out clean. Cool on baking sheets on wire rack for 1 hour.

CUT each roll diagonally into 3/4-inch slices with serrated knife. Place slices, cut sides down, on ungreased baking sheets.

BAKE for 10 minutes. Turn slices over and bake 6 to 8 minutes more or until light brown (do not overbake). Transfer to wire racks and let cool.

PLACE remaining morsels in small, heavy-duty plastic bag. Microwave on HIGH (100%) power for 20 seconds, knead bag to mix. Microwave at additional 10- second intervals, kneading until smooth. Cut a small hole in corner of bag; squeeze to drizzle biscotti. Let stand until drizzle is set. Store in an airtight container at room temperature up to 24 hours or freeze up to 3 months for longer storage.

These look wonderful for after dinner decaf , and I am certainly not above using a well-placed packaged mix if the result is good! Thanks for this recipe!

I must admit I looked at these and thought they might be a Biscotti version of s'mores. I thought the white drizzled was melted marshmallow. So now I have two variations on the more traditional biscotti to keep in mind for future bake-a-thons!
