1/2 cup hazelnut or vegetable oil
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup finely chopped hazelnuts
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour cookie sheets.
In a large bowl, beat eggs with oil; add sugar and continue beating 5 minutes until mixture is thick and pale. Fold in nuts. Sift flour with baking powder. Add to egg mixture and mix using wooden spoon or hands. Shape dough into 2 logs about 3 x 10-inches. Arrange on cookie sheet. Using a wet spatula, flatten top and smooth sides of logs. Bake 25-30 minutes until golden.
Remove from oven and lower oven temperature to 300 degrees F. Let logs cool on cookie sheets about 10 minutes. Cut into 1/2 inch slices using serrated knife. Arrange slices flat on cookie sheet and bake 15 minutes longer, until surface is dry and crisp. Transfer to wire racks to cool.Thank's For Reading hazelnut biscotti Easy Recipes
