Warm weather or cool weather, who doesn'!t like a good cup of joe and some biscotti. Fresh made is even better!


• 2 1/4 cups flour
• 1/2 cup cocoa powder
• 1 2/3 cups sugar
• 1 teaspoon baking powder
• 3 large eggs
• 3 large egg yolks
• 1 tablespoon almond extract
• 3/4 cup hazelnuts, skin on
• 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, stir together flour, cocoa, sugar and baking powder. In a separate bowl whisk together the eggs, yolks and almond extract. Add wet mix to dry and stir until the dough comes together, about 2 minutes. Add hazelnuts and chocolate chips and mix until just incorporated. Roll the dough into 3 logs each about 10 by 2 inches. Place a piece of parchment onto a baking sheet and place logs on sheet. Place in oven and bake 20 minutes until light golden brown and remove. Allow to cool 5 minutes and cut logs on a slight diagonal into pieces 1/2-inch thick. Lower heat to 300. Return cut biscotti to baking sheet, just a little bit apart from each other, and place in oven. Bake 20 minutes until crisp and dry. Cool and serve.

    Your biscotti recipe sounds wonderful. I'm going to have to give it a try. All of my friends love my biscotti and know that when Christmas is near they are getting a plate of it. I don't think about making it any other time of the year, but I just might break with tradition!
    Thanks for taking me in a new direction.
