Evolving Mommy’s Virtual Holiday Cookie Exchange
This recipe comes from my good friend Gillian. I am particularly happy that she decided to share her recipe in my cookie exchange because I recently had some of her biscotti and it was delicious. Thanks for participating, Gillian.
Hazelnut Biscotti ingredients
1 1/2 cups unbleached all purpose flour.
1 tsp anise.
1/2 cup coarsely ground hazelnuts
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar (or sucanat)
1/4 cup honey (warmed) or pure maple syrup.
optional 1/3 cup cherries
optional 4 squares melted dark chocolate for drizzling over cooled biscotti.
Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees. Grease large baking sheet.
Combine first 5 ingredients in a bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl cream the butter, sugar, egg, honey and vanilla until smooth. Add the dry ingredients and mix well.
Divide the dough in to 2 equal pieces and shape in to logs approximately 12″ long. Place on baking sheet and flatten slightly. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool, cut logs diagonally into 1/2″ slices. Place on baking sheet and return to oven for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. When cool melt chocolate in microwave and drizzle over.
Enjoy with a cup of coffee. Dunking is most definitely allowed with biscotti.
