I went to the farmer’s market last weekend and there were stalls selling all kinds of fresh produce. There were also other stalls selling baked goods like artisan breads, cookies, cupcakes and such. One stall in particular was selling biscotti of a variety of flavors. They were individually wrapped and each one costs $1.75. They were pretty tasty but i thought the price was quite high for a cookie. I’m not sure how much they normally go for but I’ve baked them before and they were not that difficult to make.
So i came home and dug out my old recipe and decided to bake them with Nutella this time:
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tbsp Nutella
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
- Preheat oven to 375 F. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- In a medium bowl, mix together oil, sugar, egg, vanilla extract and Nutella until well blended.
- Combine the flour and baking powder, stir into the egg mixture to form a heavy dough.
- Form dough into a roll and place onto prepared cookie sheet. Press down to 1/2 inch thickness.
- Bake 25 to 30 minutes in preheated oven until golden brown. Remove from baking sheet to cool on a wire rack.
- When cookie is cool enough, slice crosswise into 1/2 inch slices. Place slices cut side up back onto baking sheet.
- Bake for an additional 6 to 10 minutes on each side. Slices should be lightly toasted.
The biscotti were light & crispy with a mild chocolate flavor. I couldn’t really taste the Nutella. I guess when you bake with Nutella, its flavor doesn’t really come out. But the biscotti were still great, perfect with a cup of joe!
