Grand Marnier Biscotti

As you know, I love love love biscotti. So when I stumbled upon this site of different biscotti recipes, I know I had to try many of them. The first? The Grand Marnier Biscotti. They came out great and I was even surprised how easy making candied orange peels are. I used a food network recipe. Check it out!
This recipe does suggest dipping in chocolate after, but I omitted this time and they were just fine! Great actually!


1/3 cup butter, room
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking
2 eggs
2-1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup candied orange peel
1 tablespoon dried orange peel
1 tablespoon Grand Marnier
Approx. 1 cup dark  chocolate, melted

Preheat oven to 375-degrees F. Lightly grease a large baking sheet.
In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar until light. Add all the remaining ingredients, except the chocolate.
Divide the dough into 2 sections.  Shape the dough into slightly flattened logs about 3-inches wide.
Place logs about 3-inches apart on baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes. .  Do Not Shut Off Oven! Remove from oven  and place baking sheet in a wire rack to cool 15 minutes. Reduce the oven  temperature to 325 degrees.
Transfer each log to a cutting board. Using a serrated knife, cut diagonally into 1/2-inch slices. Place the slices cut  side down on the baking sheets. Bake 12-15 minutes, turning biscotti over  once during time. Cool on wire rack.
Once the biscotti are cooled, dip the  bottoms into the melted chocolate and allow to harden.
