I have the extreme pleasure of showcasing the first recipe from Gina DePalma’s Dolce Italiano.
1t. baking powder
1t. kosher salt
4 large eggs
2 large egg yolks, plus 1 egg white for the glaze
2c. granulated sugar, plus 1 1/2T. for the glaze
2 t. pure vanilla extract
12oz. semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
2c. skinned or unskinned hazelnuts, coarsely chopped
2c. whole, unsalted pistachios, coarsely chopped
I halved this recipe (1 3/4c. flour, etc.) for practical reasons since in the cookbook she says to use two baking trays simultaneously and I don’t have two available. It worked perfectly! I also substituted almonds for the hazelnuts and used 75% extra dark chocolate. She also recommends using a serrated knife to cut them, but I used my supersharp Santoku knife so as not to saw and smear the chocolate on the slices. The following directions were for my half batch. If using the original recipe, you will divide the dough onto two baking sheets and bake simultaneously.
