Chocolate Espresso Hazelnut Biscotti
Just like the women before me, I love baking biscotti. Thank you, Mom and Grandma! They taught me so many traditional, heritage recipes, and the family repertoire was not lacking in cookies. Biscotti aren’t exactly cookies, per se—but they are sweet, crunchy, and sooo satisfying dunked in a hot cup of coffee.
This particular recipe combines three of my favorite flavors: rich chocolate, energizing espresso, and creamy, earthy, hazelnuts. Combined with the sweetness of sugar and the warmth of cinnamon and nutmeg, this might even be my (shhh) favorite biscotti recipe ever.
You may have seen this recipe on Chicago’s Very Own WGB Channel 9, Midday Lunchbreak. Abbondanza!
That’s right, my chocolate espresso hazelnut biscotti recipe is so good I included it in my cookie cookbook, A Gift of Cookies: Recipes to Share with Family & Friends... and it was featured on Chicago’s own WGN Channel 9 “Midday Lunch Break” segment. Yep, it was good enough to go on TV. Try this recipe and see for yourself. Abbondanza!
