TWD 11 - Hazelnut Biscotti
I also have to be honest. I have never tried either biscotti or cantuccini, so I had no idea what to expect.
Preparing the dough and baking the biscotti wasn't hard at all and I even didn't have a cooling rack that I could put in the oven. :)))
I have also never roasted hazelnuts before. I found it a bit tricky as I had no idea how brown should they be and I had no left-over to combine the colour with a raw hazelnut. But 15-20 minutes at 300 Fahrenheit would do.
I really liked the roasted hazelnut taste, but to be honest (I am very honest now), for me the biscotti turned out to be very dry and hard. I like much more my Hot Chocolate Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies.
