Recipe Notes

You can use some kitchen string to tie it up like a real salami if you like.

If you are allergc to nuts, you can substitute the hazelnuts with the same amount of cookies.

This recipe uses raw eggs, so please be careful. Consuming raw or undercooked eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially if you have a medical condition. Do so at your own risk, or use pasteurised eggs.
