cinnamon biscotti

cinnamon biscotti

  • Yield: 0 servings ( Serving Size: makes 12 large biscotti or 24 )
  • Cook time:0 Minute
  • Prep time:0 Minute

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 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
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ..
  • Topping:
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 beaten egg (for brushing biscotti before baking)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and arrange two baking racks in the upper portion of the oven. Line one or two baking sheets (depending whether youd like one big biscotti or 2 smaller ones) with parchment paper and set aside.

1

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

2

Also whisk together the cinnamon and sugar for the topping and set aside.

3

In the bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes.

4

Scrape down the down and beat in the egg followed by the egg yolk.

5

Beat in the vanilla extract.

6

Add the dry ingredients to the creamed butter all at once. With the mixer or just with a spatula, bring all of the ingredients together until a somewhat stiff dough is formed.

7

For a large biscotti (about 12 cookies), shape dough into one large loaf, about 7-inches wide and use just one baking sheet. For smaller loaves (about 24 cookies), divide the dough in two on the two baking sheets. Shape each half of dough into a 9-inch long and 1 1/2-inch wide log.

8

Brush with the beaten egg and sprinkle very generously with cinnamon sugar (about 2/3 of the cinnamon sugar mixture). Bake the two sheets on two different racks in the oven for 20 minutes. Rotate the cookie sheets for even baking and bake for 20-25 more minutes until golden and firm to the touch.

9

Remove from the oven but keep the oven on. Let biscotti cool until able to handle. Using a serrated knife, cut logs into 1/2-inch wide diagonal slices.

10

Place biscotti cut side down on baking sheet and sprinkle with more cinnamon sugar. Bake again until pale golden, about 10-15 minutes.

11

Store in an airtight container for up to one week.
