Hazelnut Biscotti

Posted on

is that the saddest looking little pile of biscotti you’ve ever seen?

I was actually pretty excited to make this.  Who doesn’t love a little crunch with the afternoon coffee?  And these are from the recipe in Bob Greene’s The Best Life Diet.  That’s right.  They’re only 83 calories each.  Oh, wait a minute.  I should say If you follow the recipe they will be.  The instructions say to cut them into 1/2-inch think slices and they will make 16.  My version only made 8, and they pretty much fell apart because they were too small.  That’s okay, though.  I don’t mind a 166-calorie snack.

I’ll tell you what I do mind:  getting the skin off of hazelnuts.

Eat Well and Savor.

  1. No, I think they look fine. But then again, I’ve never met a biscotti I don’t think is fine. Just kidding! I really think they look yummy! 🙂
