Chef Chuck's Chocolate Wafer Biscotti


Chocolate Wafer Biscotti

Sweet, light and crunchy around the edges compliment the creamy chocolate filled inside, making this biscotti sandwich the perfect little treat. Enjoy after dinner, or pair with tea and coffee for mid morning pick-me-up.

1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
4 egg whites

On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and a spray of Pam use a pastry bag, form cookies 3 to 4 inches long and 1 inch wide.
