Chocolate Orange Biscotti

2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup sugar
1 stick unsalted butter, room temp
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs
zest of one orange
juice of 1/2 an orange
1 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, mix flour and baking powder. Set aside.  Cream together sugar, butter, salt, orange zest & orange juice.  Add eggs, one at a time.  Add dry ingredients until just incorporated.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Form dough into a 12 inch log on the baking sheet.  Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let sit for 30 minutes.  Using a serrated knife, cut log on the diagonal into 1/2 inch pieces. Place cut side down on the baking sheet.  Bake until pale golden, about 15 minutes.
