"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut

Hazelnut Cookies
Hazelnut Cookies
(Biscotti Alla Nocciola)

2 cups hazelnuts, toasted and skinned
1 and 1/4 cups sugar
4 large egg whites
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Position 2 racks as close to the center of the oven as possible; preheat to 325F.

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or nonstick baking mats.

Pulse nuts and sugar in a food processor until finely ground. Do not process nuts for longer than necessary to get them to a fine consistency.

Scrape into a large bowl.

Beat egg whites and salt in another large bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form.

Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the egg whites into the nut mixture.

Add vanilla and gently but thoroughly mix until combined.

Drop the batter by the tablespoonful 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. The runny batter will spread quickly, so make sure you leave space.

Bake the cookies until golden brown, switching the pans back to front and top to bottom halfway through, 25 to 30 minutes.

Let cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes.

Gently transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

When the baking sheets are thoroughly cooled, repeat with the remaining batter. Makes about 2 and 1/2 dozen cookies.

Note: Toast whole hazelnuts on a baking sheet in a 350F oven, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, 7 to 9 minutes. Let the nuts cool for a few minutes, then rub together in a clean kitchen towel to remove most of the papery skins.
