Well it finally happened… I went rogue on this one…Hazelnut Biscotti became Chocolate Chip Biscotti….and I would have to say it was a great choice! 🙂 If you would like the recipe for Hazelnut Biscotti check out our host blogs: Homemade and Wholesome and Baking and Boys.
I don’t drink coffee so my experience with biscotti is pretty limited but I would have to say these were really delicious! I dipped them in milk. 🙂 There were two things I changed up in the recipe…I added the chocolate chips for the hazelnuts and then I just used more vanilla to offset the liqueur I wasn’t using. There was a great vanilla taste that came through in the cookies…loved it!
Mixed up the batter and realized they were not kidding that the dough would be sticky. I didn’t think flouring my hands was going to make one bit of difference so I just used my spatula and placed the dough into logs on the parchment paper…I wasn’t sure if this would work but actually it worked brilliantly and I would suggest it to anyone who had trouble with sticky dough.
I was afraid my biscotti would be thin since I didn’t make the log the way I was instructed to, but it seemed to work out just fine. I would really recommend using the spatula to plop it into a log…so much easier and now I know it works. 🙂
These really were delicious…my daughter, parents, and my “tasting” friend all said they were great with their tea/coffee. Actually everyone I shared them with said they were great and loved the chocolate chips so I would have to say I would make them just the way I did the next time… these are a keeper! 😉
