the 34 cookies of Christmas: day 19

Every year we develop a few new cookie recipes in our test kitchens, and premiere them during the holiday baking season. One of this year's new cookies was a double chocolate biscotti. Both Dutch cocoa powder and Belgian bittersweet chocolate flavor these cookies, which are also packed with toasted whole hazelnuts and dried sweet cherries. Baked, sliced, and baked again, these cookies were crispy and rich in flavor, with the bittersweet chocolate drizzled on top adding a dark and luxurious finish. We have a feeling that we haven't seen the last of these new holiday treats... and it may happen much sooner than next December! Maybe even as soon as tomorrow morning, with a cup of our dark roast Over the Rhine coffee!
