really tasty and easy. After much searching I finally found a perfect biscotti pan on amazon.com. It's made by USA pans and has a ribbed silicone layer. With a light coat of spray the biscotti popped right out. The full recipe fits just right, no shaping etc. No I'm not selling anything,just wanted to share a great find.
YUM! I've never made biscotti before and chose this recipe to try because I love nutella. These were delish! I've made this recipe twice now. I formed the dough into 3 logs, each 1" thick. Also, I had to increase the initial bake time from 20 minutes to 25 minutes (stick a toothpick in the center & when it comes out clean you are good to go!) After cutting the biscotti I baked it again for 14 minutes on each side. I didn't have hazelnuts but added white chocolate chips. Thanks Ginny for this recipe - it's a definite keeper!!
I added a little more flour and used white choc chips instead, and made this recipe into cookies. They were delicous!!
My daughter loves Nutella, so I made this biscotti recipe to send to her at college. They have a great flavor and are quite crunchy. I posted a couple photos. You'll see that I added white chocolate chips. A couple tips: press down a bit on your pre-baked "logs" but if you compress them to 1/2" thickness, as stated, they will be very very thin. I would only compress to about 1". Also, after forming the logs, brush off any excess flour (just a little water on a pastry brush) because leftover flour looks white on the finished biscotti.
Love this recipe, very good flavor and great with coffee. I usually use almonds if I don't have hazelnuts on hand.
These are perfect! Easy and very tastey! I used mini chocolate chips, otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. Thank you for posting!
just did this recipe today, it was good but not one of my favorites,I was out of hazelnuts, that may have made a big difference. I willtry it again with the nuts and see if that makes a difference.Thanks for the recipe. Gemstone sal *
I make biscotti often and this recipe is not correct. You need to add 1 cup of Nutella and bake for 30 minutes. I tried exactly the way it was submitted and after 20 minutes when I tried to cut them they were raw inside and a mess to cut. The 1/2 cup of Nutella is not enough, because they need a fat so that they are not hard. Mine were the texture of a dog biscuit, but the flavor was good.
Messy to make, but gives a nice quantity of biscotti and very chocolaty. I used the chips and the nuts. I aslo dried them out for a bit longer than stated in the oven. Really flour your hands well when you work with the very wet dough.
This recipe is perfect! The biscottis came out rich, choclatey and very very delicious. I ate one about 2 weeks after I made them and it was still very very good! This is def. a go to recipe. thank you!
