    Espresso-Hazelnut Biscotti #131499 doesn't seem to have any butter in it. I guess the egg would hold it together, but all the other biscotti recipes seem to have butter. Is this usual? Has anyone baked anything similar? Or does anyone want to suggest their favourites.... icon_wink.gif

    Years ago they never used butter or shortening in the biscottis. But they were hard, more for dunking in coffee. Now I use the ones with butter because we like them softer. Also I dont bake them that long the second time.

    preheat 350 degrees, line cookie sheet with parchment.
    In a bowl combine 2 cups ap flour, 1/4 cup dutch cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 3/4 tsp cinnamon,

    1/2 tsp allspice, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp white pepper, 1/2 tsp ground ginger,

    whisk all these dry ingredients well together.

    In your bowl of mixer beat 1 cup granulated white sugar with 3 large room temp eggs, until mix is thick and pale yellow.

    Beat in 2 teaspoons vanilla.

    Sift in the dry ingredients over the egg mixture, and fold into a dough batter just until combined.

    Fold in 1 cup finely chopped dried pears.

    Divide your dough into two logs and shape into 12 inch logs by 2 inches wide. Leaving a space at least four inches between each log.

    Bake for about 20 to 30 minutes until they are firm to touch and just starting to slightly crack on top.

    Remove and place on a wire rack.

    Loosen the logs from cookie sheet and let cool ten minutes.

    Slide the cooled baked logs to a cutting board and slice with serrated knife with sawing motion into 1/2 inch slices.

    Place back onto sheet cut side down and bake for 6 minutes, turn and bake another 6 minutes. Until dry and crisp they way you like them. Or do not do a second baking your choice. Taste before doing a second baking to decide.

    Remove to wire rack and cool .

    Store in covered container for up to a month.

    These are hard dunkers. I always think they can use a little more pears, but have never done so yet.

    I finally found some dried pears and made the biscotti.
    WOW! Great flavors. Had one fresh out of the oven and one just now that was cool.
    Will be making those all the time. Great little treats.
    Thank you so much for sharing.
