Nutella Biscotti

It's that Christmas baking time of year again.  Biscotti are a wonderful gift with a mug, some hot chocolate mix and a coffee gift card.  These are simple and delicious.
  • ⅓ cup walnuts, roughly chopped
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1¼ cup + 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 3-4 T. Nutella
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 large egg yolks
  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. Whisk all the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk in Nutella, egg yolks and egg.
  4. Add dry ingredients and walnuts to the Nutella and egg mix and work the mixture with your hands for about 1 to 2 minutes, until it comes together - it should be a slightly sticky dough ball.
  5. Divide the dough in half and place them on a piece of parchment paper. Flatten and shape each piece into a rectangular loaf, about 2 inches high.
  6. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes.
  7. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes . lower heat to 300º
  8. Slice the loaves into half and inch thick pieces and place the pieces back on the parchment paper.
  9. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes.  Flip pieces and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
  10. Turn the heat off and take the biscotti out of the oven. Let cool to room temperature before eating.
