TWD: Hazelnut Biscotti

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie is Hazelnut Biscotti, and is hosted by Jodi and Katrina.

Now… I know this is probably sacrilege, but I hate hazelnuts. I don’t even like Nutella. I know, I’m a horrible person, right?

So instead of hazelnuts in my biscotti I decided to use sliced almonds. I also didn’t want to spend the money on Frangelico or brandy for just two teaspoons, so I just used a teaspoon of almond extract and a teaspoon of water to keep the liquid content consistent.

I also added about 1/4 cup of white chocolate chips and 1/4 cup of milk chocolate chips because why not?

I usually find biscotti to be pretty bland, even when dipped in coffee or milk. And I obviously can’t speak to how the hazelnuts or Frangelico may have actually tasted, but once this is dipped into warm coffee, the almond flavors just explode. It was really delicious.

The kids also think they’re pretty fantastic in milk. Keeper!
