  • Combine flour, hazelnuts, and baking powder.

  • In a large bowl, beat butter and honey until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients.

  • Divide dough in half. On prepared baking sheet, form each half into a log about 12 inches long and 2 inches wide, spacing about 2 inches apart.

  • Bake for 14 to 16 minutes until golden brown. Transfer logs to a cutting board and cut on diagonal into 1/2 inch thick slices. Lay slices on ungreased baking sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes longer -- until dry. Transfer to wire racks to cool. Store in a tightly sealed container and let them age for a few days before serving.

It is dry but it's biscotti. Dip it in coffee. In order to increase the flavor I roasted chopped nuts (pecans and almonds because that's what I had) and put them in instead of ground nuts. It was very flavorful and delicious. Read More

These are actually absolutely delicious biscotti - I LOVE the addition of whole wheat flour it gives this a really unique and very rich taste. I did use a mixture of walnuts and pecans as I didn't have hazelnuts. Made these two times in the last 10 days already!:) Read More

I made these with 1/2 c. whole wheat and 1 cup all purpose flour. They turned out delicious. They are very dry and flaky just the way delicious biscotti should taste. Read More

Not my favorite Biscotti recipe. From reading the reviews that they were bland I added dried cranberries and pistachios. Still great with coffee or tea. I may have cut mine too big but I only got almost two dozen out of this recipe. Read More

Followed to a T. The batter was nice and formed into logs quite easily however not that flavorful for a biscotti cookie rather bland and didn't have that sweetness either. Sorry I won't be making again. Read More
