I has been awhile. I find this slightly humorous as my blog's name has biscotti in it. You would think I would be providing you with a plethora of recipes in a burgeoning file labeled "biscotti". But alas, I have been negligent in my biscotti duties.
I believe I have fulfilled the daily requirement for large words.....:)
I do enjoy a lovely biscotti and I have been looking forward to making this variation since I came upon it earlier in the year. It sounds like it would be the most lovely accompaniment to a chai tea, or a pumpkin spice latte, and a good Jane Austen inspired book :) Sweet cinnamon cookies to dunk in a steaming hot mug of goodness. :)
Here she be. I hope to have some ladies over to enjoy these babies soon!!

What you Need:
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup granulated sugar
6 Tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 egg yolk
2 Tablespoons of milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 beaten egg (for brushing biscotti before baking)
What you Do:
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt.
3. Whisk together the cinnamon and sugar for the topping and set aside.
4. In a large bowl cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in egg, egg yolk, milk, and vanilla; beat another minute.
5. Add the dry ingredients to the creamed butter all at once. With a spoon or spatula, stir ingredients into a ball of dough.
6. Divide the dough in two. Shape each half of dough into a 9-inch long and 2-inch wide log.
7. Brush with the beaten egg and sprinkle very liberally with the cinnamon sugar.
8. Bake in the oven for 40 - 45 minutes.

10. Bake again until pale golden, about 10-15 minutes. Cool completely.
11. Dunk into sweet tea, chai tea, lattes, WHATEVER....and enjoy!
