Hazelnut Biscotti

After having a wonderful walk on this sunny day, I still had no idea what to bake that goes well with a nice cup of tea. While preparing lunch, I discovered an open bottle hazelnut syrup in the fridge and that brought me to the idea to bake hazelnut biscotti.

2 eggs
200 g sugar
50 g hazelnut syrup
2 tablespoons sherry
200 g hazelnut
300 g flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

Beat eggs with the sugar, syrup and sherry until foamy. Add hazelnuts, flour and baking powder and knead well. Half batter and form two flat rolls, about 4 cm wide. Bake for 20 minutes on 160°C. Let biscotti cool and slice in about 1,5 cm thick and bake for another 15 minutes.

Hazelnut syrup, that's interesting! Where did you find it?

Your biscotti look perfect! I made some last week and they accompanied my coffee very well...

wollte ich auch schon lange machen und konnte mein Rezept nicht mehr finden. Danke, dieses sieht nach mehr als Lückenbüsser aus.

Was the hazelnut syrup for making Italian sodas?

I can imagine having some of that biscotti with some hazelnut coffee!

Rosa: I found the syrup in Germany, but I do not remember which shop.

Nate-n-Annie: no the syrup is for flavoring coffee.
