    Title: Mexican Chocolate Walnut-Cherry Biscotti
    Categories: Chocolate, Chilies, Nuts, Fruits
    Yield: 30 servings

    2 3/4 c A-P flour
    2 c Sugar
    1 c Dutch-processed cocoa
    1 1/2 ts Baking soda
    1 1/2 ts Ground cinnamon
    1/2 ts Cayenne pepper
    6 lg Eggs; room temp, divided
    - use
    2 ts Vanilla extract
    1 1/2 c Chopped walnuts; toasted
    1 c Semisweet chocolate chips
    1 c Maraschino cherries; drained
    - halved

    Set oven @ 325ºF/165ºC.

    Whisk the first 6 ingredients. In another bowl, whisk 5
    eggs and vanilla; stir into dry ingredients. Stir in
    walnuts, chocolate chips and cherries. Transfer to a
    lightly floured surface; knead gently until dough forms
    (dough will be sticky).

    Using floured hands, divide dough into 3 portions. Shape
    each portion into an 8" X 3" rectangle on parchment
    lined baking sheets. Beat remaining egg; brush over
    tops. Bake until firm to the touch, 30-35 minutes. Cool
    on pans on wire racks until firm, 10-15 minutes.

    Reduce oven setting to 300ºF/150ºC. Transfer baked
    rectangles to a cutting board. Using a serrated knife,
    cut diagonally into 3/4" slices. Place on baking sheets,
    cut side down. Bake until crisp, 10-12 minutes on each
    side. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
    Store in an airtight container.
