  1. Whisk the egg and sugar together in a mixing bowl until pale and frothy. Using a wooden spoon, slowly work in the flour, ground almonds or hazelnuts, baking powder, lime rind and salt.
  2. Add the chopped pistachios, and hazelnuts and knead lightly to form a soft dough, shape the dough into a thick log, 25 cm long and 10 cm wide, then flatten it slightly with the palm of your hand.
  3. Transfer the dough to a greased baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven, at 1800C, set timer for 35 minutes until golden. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for 5 minutes, then cut into 5 mm thick slices using a serrated knife.
  4. Arrange the biscotti directly on a grill pan and cook under a preheated low grill for 4 minutes on each side until crisp and golden.
  5. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
