Orange Hazelnut Biscotti

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Top Review by Stephie Biggs

I LIKE how low fat this recipe is! It's not as orange flavored as I had hoped, instead it's more of a suble orange taste. The texture is nice and crunchy. I skipped the glaze and just threw in a few chocolate chips, which worked well. I also substituted hazelnuts with pecans. This is a good recipe.
