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

skinned, toasted hazelnuts
unbleached all-purpose flour
mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
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!
Yummy! I omitted chocolate chips, but after kneading, I patted the dough out to a rectangle and put Nutella chocolate hazelnut spread on it. I had wanted to roll the dough like a jelly roll, but it's too sticky for that. Ended up folding the edges over and shaping into log.
very good! a hit with all!
Hazelnet (AKA as filberts, same nut) is my favorite flavor of Biscotti. But getting my hands on hazelnuts can be very hard in my area. I've been known to substitute brazil nuts (chopped) which are kind of bland and used hazelnut coffee syrup (available in specialty coffee shops) to get a very passable hazelnut flavor. The slight additional moisture makes them easy to cut when out of the oven about 10 min. Less crumbling. BUT, if I can get the hazelnuts, I use them.
Great! Left out chocolate chips because I wanted a strong hazelnut flavour. I also added 2 tbsp more liqueur.
