"Twice-baked cookie that can have miniature chocolate chips in the batter. Use brandy in place of the hazelnut liqueur if you like!"

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  2. Coarsely chop the hazelnuts. In a bowl, combine the nuts, sugar, butter, liqueur and eggs; mix well. Stir in the flour, baking powder and salt.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead briefly; then form into a long loaf about 2 inches wide. Place the loaf on a parchment-lined or lightly oiled cookie sheet and bake in the middle of the oven for 25 min. or until firm. The loaf will have a cakelike texture. Remove from the oven and cool.
  4. Cut the loaf diagonally into 1/4-1/2 inch slices and lay those out on a cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes more, turning them once until both sides are lightly browned and toasted. Cool and store in an airtight container.

I substituted toasted, slivered almonds for the hazelnuts and brandy for the liquer and omitted the chocolate chips. I have had hearty complements from everyone that has tried these. These really are fantastic!

Making biscotti for the first time, I found this recipe very easy and good. However, I changed the directions a bit. I creamed the butter with the sugar, added eggs and brandy. I added the dry ingredients and then the nuts and the chocolate chips. I used filbert nut instead of hazelnuts. It was delicious. I would do this recipe again =)

This is a great flavor variation on traditional biscotti. If you ground the hazelnuts the cookies come out almost crumbly and less like a crunchy, hard biscotti. A must try for non-dunkers like myself, and ADD THE CHOCOLATE!
