Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Combine flour, hazelnuts, and baking powder.
  3. In a large bowl, beat butter and honey until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients.
  4. Divide dough in half. On prepared baking sheet, form each half into a log about 12 inches long and 2 inches wide, spacing about 2 inches apart.
  5. Bake for 14 to 16 minutes until golden brown. Transfer logs to a cutting board and cut on diagonal into 1/2 inch thick slices. Lay slices on ungreased baking sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes longer -- until dry. Transfer to wire racks to cool. Store in a tightly sealed container and let them age for a few days before serving.

It is dry, but it's biscotti. Dip it in coffee. In order to increase the flavor, I roasted chopped nuts (pecans and almonds because that's what I had) and put them in instead of ground nuts. It was very flavorful and delicious.

These cookies are supposed to be dry...they are an Italian cookie meant for dipping in coffee. I love biscotti and am looking forward to trying this recipe.

These are actually absolutely delicious biscotti - I LOVE the addition of whole wheat flour, it gives this a really unique and very rich taste. I did use a mixture of walnuts and pecans, as I didn't have hazelnuts. Made these two times in the last 10 days already! :)

I made these with 1/2 c. whole wheat and 1 cup all purpose flour. They turned out delicious. They are very dry and flaky, just the way delicious biscotti should taste.

Followed to a T. The batter was nice and formed into logs quite easily, however, not that flavorful for a biscotti cookie, rather bland and didn't have that sweetness either. Sorry I won't be making again.
