Hazelnut Biscotti- Gluten Free

These delicate biscotti might surprise you. While they have the normal crunchiness that you’d expect,  they also have a melt in your mouth texture. If biscotti are sometimes too hard for your taste- try making these instead. The combination of toasted hazelnuts, orange peel and vanilla make them wonderfully fragrant as well. I used gluten free flour in this recipe, but you could use all purpose flour if you prefer.

 

 

Hazelnut Biscotti

3 c. gluten-free flour
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
3 eggs
1 c sugar
1/4 c. butter, melted
1/4 c. olive oil
1 1/2 t. vanilla
1 t. grated orange peel
1 c. hazelnuts, toasted, peeled and chopped

Combine dry ingredients and set aside. Mix together eggs, sugar, butter, oil, vanilla and peel. Beat until smooth and stir in flour mixture and nuts. Grease a large baking sheet and place dough on sheet, forming into 2 (14×3)-inch logs. Bake at 325-degrees until tester inserted in center comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Cool 15 minutes and leave oven on. Use serrated knife to cut into 1/2 -inch thick slices. Place cooling rack on your baking sheet. Place cut side down on cooling rack  and return to oven for 20 minutes.  Cool. Makes about 24. You can leave them plain or add a drizzle of chocolate once cooled.
