Honey Biscotti image

Excellent served with coffee or as a snack alone, this charming twice-baked cookie is a variation on the classic crispy biscotti, but flavored with the delicate essence of honey and orange. Although the honey marries beautifully with other flavors, it is still the most profound taste, so be sure to choose a high quality honey. Any nut can be used (even the traditional pine nut), but we're partial to how wonderfully pistachios complement the honey in this combination.

Time 1h

Yield 48 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 13

1/4 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup honey
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon orange flower water
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons grated orange zest, minced
3/4 cup shelled pistachios, toasted and coarsely chopped


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
  • Using the paddle attachment of an electric mixer, cream the butter until light and creamy.
  • Beat in sugar and honey until smooth, then add eggs one at a time.
  • Add vanilla and orange flower water and mix to thoroughly combine.
  • Mix dry ingredients into the wet just until mixed.
  • The dough should be stiff at this point.
  • Stir in the orange zest and pistachios.
  • Divide dough in half.
  • On a prepared baking sheet lined with parchment paper, shape each half into a 12x3-inch log.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, until golden.
  • Remove from the oven and transfer logs to a cutting board.
  • Reduce oven to 325°F
  • While still warm, Use a long serrated knife to cut each log diagonally into ½-inch slices.
  • If logs become cool and begins to crack when cut, rewarm in the oven for about 30 seconds until soft enough to slice easily.
  • Arrange the cut strips back on the baking sheet and bake for another 20 minutes, until dry, crisp and lightly colored. Remove from the oven and cool completely on wire racks, then store in an airtight container.
  • [Chef�s Note: If you do not have access to orange flower water, feel free to substitute orange extract or use all vanilla extract. Biscotti will continue to crisp as they cool after the second baking, so be careful not to over bake. These cookies will keep for a few weeks stored in an airtight container; they also freeze nicely in an airtight plastic bag for a few months.].

Double Chocolate, Orange and Hazelnut Biscotti image

Biscotti are easier to make than you might think, and they're delicious with breakfast or as a snack. They store well for over a week in a sealed jar or bag. I came up with this recipe when trying to use odds and ends I had in the house. Although we love to munch on all kinds of biscotti, this variety is especially amazing-just try one with coffee or espresso! -Sarah Knoblock, Hyde Park, Indiana

Hazelnut, Orange and Honey Biscotti image

Orange, hazelnut and honey make a wonderful combination in this whole wheat biscotti. The hard cookies should be sliced thin, which will yield a lot of cookies! They are wonderful dipped in tea.

Provided by Martha Rose Shulman

Categories     dessert

Time 2h

Yield 5 dozen smaller cookies (cut across the log)

Number Of Ingredients 10

220 grams (approximately 1 3/4 cups) whole wheat flour
120 grams (approximately 1 1/3 cups) hazelnut flour
5 grams (approximately 1 teaspoon) baking powder
1/8 teaspoon (pinch) of salt
190 grams (1/2 cup) honey
165 grams (3 large) eggs
2 tablespoons orange liqueur, such as Cointreau, or orange juice
5 grams (approximately 1 teaspoon) vanilla extract
2 tablespoons finely chopped orange zest
100 grams hazelnuts, toasted, skinned and chopped (approximately 3/4 cup chopped)


  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment. Whisk together the flour, hazelnut flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, or in a large bowl with a whisk or electric beater, beat together the honey and eggs for 2 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and beaters. Add the vanilla, orange liqueur or juice, and orange zest and beat for another minute. Turn off the mixer, scrape down the bowl and beaters, and add the flour mixture. Mix in at low speed until combined. The batter will be sticky. Add the hazelnuts and mix until well combined.
  • Using a spatula or a bowl scraper, scrape out half the batter onto the baking sheet. Moisten your hands so the dough won't stick, and form a log, about 12 inches long by 2 1/2 inches wide. Repeat with the other half of the batter. The logs can be on the same baking sheet but make sure there is at least 2 inches of space between them.
  • Place in the oven and bake 40 to 45 minutes, until lightly browned and dry. Remove from the oven and cool on a rack for 20 minutes (or longer). Place on a cutting board and slice thin, about 1/3 inch, either straight across the logs (for more, but smaller biscotti) or on the diagonal (for more traditionally shaped biscotti).
  • Place the cookies on baking sheets and return one sheet at a time to the middle rack of the oven. Bake 15 minutes. Flip the cookies over and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes, until hard and lightly browned. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.

Orange Hazelnut Biscotti image

This recipe for biscotti comes from Canadian cookbook author, Anne Lindsay's, Light Kitchen. After the biscotti are cooled, I sometimes drizzle melted dark chocolate over the tops, which, unfortunately, adds a few extra calories. I also have subsituted orange extract for the vanilla for a more intense orange flavour (which really goes good with the chocolate).

Orange-Nut Biscotti image

Categories     Cookies     Nut     Bake     Orange

Yield makes 3 to 4 dozen

Number Of Ingredients 10

1 cup almonds or hazelnuts
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups flour
Pinch of salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
Zest of 1 orange
1 to 2 tablespoons milk, if necessary
Flour for the pans


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Toast the nuts in a dry skillet over medium heat, shaking the pan frequently until they color slightly and become fragrant, 3 or 4 minutes.
  • Combine the sugar, flour, salt, and baking powder in a food processor; pulse to blend. Add the eggs, vanilla, and zest and process until the mixture forms a dough ball; if necessary, add a tablespoon or two of milk. Add the toasted nuts and pulse a few times; you don't want to pulverize the nuts, just chop them lightly (and it's okay if some remain whole) and integrate them into the dough.
  • Butter 2 baking sheets and dust them with flour; invert the sheets and tap them to remove excess flour. Divide the dough in half and shape each half into a 2-inch-wide log. Place each log onto one of the baking sheets.
  • Bake until the loaves are golden and beginning to crack on top, about 30 minutes; remove the logs from the oven. Lower the oven temperature to 250°F. When the loaves are cool enough to handle, use a serrated knife to cut each on the diagonal into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Put the slices on the sheets, return to the oven, and leave them there until they dry out, 15 to 20 minutes, turning once. Cool on wire racks.
