2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 ¼ cups granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
¾ teaspoon kosher salt
¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder (not dutch process)
8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, melted and cooled
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
¾ cup white chocolate chips
¾ cup dried cherries, chopped
¾ cup pecan pieces
Recipe For Garnish:
1 cup white chocolate, melted and cooled
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Sift together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a medium bowl. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the butter, eggs, and vanilla until combined. Form a well in the middle of the dry ingredients, and pour the butter mixture into the middle. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet until the dough comes together. Stir in the white chocolate chips, chopped dried cherries, and pecan pieces, transferring to a floured counter top to get the dough to hold together.
Divide the dough in half equally and roll each portion into a 10 x 2 inch log. On a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper place the dough and flatten the top just slightly, then bake until firm to the touch, 35-40 minutes. Allow to cool for 20 minutes, then cut the logs into ½ inch wide strips. Replace to the cookie sheets and bake a second time for 15-20 minutes. Transfer cookie sheet to a wire rack and allow the biscotti to cool completely.
For the Garnish: Once cooled, stripe the top of each biscotti with the melted white chocolate
