Yield: 20 cantucci


1 ¼ cups white sugar
3 eaches eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
¾ cup chopped dark chocolate


Step 1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with
parchment paper.

Step 2
Combine sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract in a large bowl; beat with an electric
mixer until frothy. Add flour and baking powder and mix well. Fold in
chocolate pieces until a sticky dough forms. Separate dough into 2 portions
and shape each portion into a long, thick log. Place logs 2 inches apart on the
prepared baking sheet.

Step 3
Bake logs in the preheated oven until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.

Step 4
Remove logs from the oven and cool until easily handled, about 5 minutes.
Transfer to a cutting board; slice logs diagonally into 3/4-inch slices using a
serrated knife.

Step 5
Return cantucci slices to the baking sheet and return to the oven. Turn off
oven and allow cantucci to dry in the warm oven for 30 minutes. Cool to
room temperature, about 10 minutes, before serving.
