  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.

Great! Left out chocolate chips because I wanted a strong hazelnut flavour. I also added 2 tbsp more liqueur.

A very nice recipe! I omitted the chocolate and as liquer I used 2 tablespoons of Frangelico liquer. the dough was fairly sticky so had to use quite a bit of flour to shape the loaf. better us...
