Chocolate & hazelnut biscotti

Ingredients:

2 medium eggs

100g caster sugar

250g plain flour, plus extra for dusting

½ tsp bicarbonate of soda

zest 1 orange

25g toasted hazelnuts roughly chopped

25g chocolate chips

Method:

Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line a large Non-stick Baking tray 

Whisk together the eggs and sugar until light and fluffy. 

Sift the flour and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl, then add the orange zest, hazelnuts and chocolate chips. 

Fold into the egg mix to make a soft dough. 

Tip onto a lightly floured surface, shape into a 25cm sausage shape with lightly floured hands, then transfer to a baking sheet. 

Flatten to a 3cm thickness, then bake for 30 mins until lightly browned on top.

Then… 

Remove and slide onto a chopping board, then reduce the oven to 160C/140C fan/gas. Cut the log into 1cm thick slices and return to the baking sheet, cut-sides up. 

Bake for a further 10-15 mins until crisp, then cool on a wire rack.
