Peppermint Biscotti

You will either love these or hate them! Big fans of peppermint love them. Others say they taste like toothpaste. I was hesitant but I discovered I fit in the former category. So I decided to share them – with the caveat.

¾ cup margarine, softened
¾ cup sugar
3 eggs
2 teaspoon peppermint extract
3-1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup crushed peppermint candies (I used some pareve candy canes that I found at the grocery store)

2 cups chocolate chips
2 tablespoons shortening

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together margarine and sugar. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Beat in extract. Blend in flour and baking powder. Stir in candy. Divide dough in form into loaves. Place on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes. Slice and bake and additional 10 minutes. Cool. Melt chocolate chips and shortening and drizzle over cookies. Freeze well.
