Cinnamon Sugar Biscotti



3 to 4 dozen



2 cups flour
2-1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup 3 plus tbsp. sugar
6 tbsp. butter, room temperature
2 eggs
1 egg yolk
1 tsp. vanilla


Heat oven to 325°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Mix flour, 1-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl to blend. Using a mixer, beat 1 cup sugar and butter until fluffy. Add 1 egg, beat well. Add egg yolk, beat well. Mix in vanilla, then dry ingredients.

Transfer dough to work surface. Divide in half. Shape each half into a log. Transfer logs to baking sheets. Beat remaining egg in a small bowl. Brush logs with beaten egg. Bake until golden and firm to touch (dough will spread) about 50 minutes. Cool on baking sheets on wire racks. Mix 3 tablespoons sugar and remaining 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl. Using serrated knife, cut logs into 1/2-inch wide slices. Place biscotti, cut side down, on baking sheets. Sprinkle each biscotti with cinnamon-sugar. Bake until pale golden, about 20 minutes. Cool on racks.

Biscotti is a good keeper. Make it up to a week in advance. Store airtight.
