Hazelnut Biscotti
« on: September 05, 2010, 11:46:01 am »
Heres my first conversion

Hazelnut biscotti

175grams room temperature butter
180grams white sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups plain flour (sorry forgot to take note of how many grams this was)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
100grams hazelnuts

Preheat oven to 180

1.Cream butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla together, speed 5-6 for 3 mintues or until creamy

2.sift flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt into thermi beat speed 5-6 for about 3 minutes or until well combined, you  may need to open lid to scrap down sides a couple of times.

3.Once combine add hazelnut, combine on reverse speed 4.

4.Shape dough into two equal logs approximately 25cms long. Place logs on baking sheet, and flatten out to about 1/2 inch thickness.

5.Bake for about 30 minutes in preheated oven, or until edges are golden and the center is firm. Remove from oven to cool on the pans. When loaves are cool enough to handle, use a serrated knife to slice the loaves diagonally into 1/2 inch thick slices.

6.Return the slices to the baking sheet. Bake for an additional 10 minutes, turning over once. Cool completely, and store in an airtight container at room temperature.

i found these spread out when cooking so you may want to put each log on two trays, but htey will fit on one. They are absolutely delicious, next time i may add choc chips.

We find biscotti is good to take on holidays as it lasts for so long. Now I have another one to add to my repertoire.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
