I made this with a stand mixer, so I had no problem kneading the dough into submission. I used wet hands to form the logs and that makes a huge difference. I did not eyeball any ingredients, and my extra care was reflected in the taste - a biscotti lightly kissed by cinnamon, not overpowered by it.
- 2 3⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon good vanilla extract
- 3 large eggs
- cooking spray
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 large egg white
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat Oven to 350 degrees F.
- Measure flour into a large bowl using the scoop and level method.
- Add 1 cup sugar, baking powder and salt.
- Mix oil, vanilla and whole eggs in a small bowl, and add to the large bowl (your dough will be dry and quite crumbly).
- Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead 7 or 8 times.
- Divide in half. Shape each portion into a roll about 8 inches long, and place them six or so inches apart on a cookie sheet lined with parchment.
- Flatten each roll to 1 inch thick.
- Combine the 2 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon, then gently brush the tops of the rolls with the egg white and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
- Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
- Remove from the sheet and cool for 15 minutes.
- Cut diagonally into 1/2 inch slices and lay them cut sides down on the cookie sheet again.
- Reduce oven temp to 325 degrees F and then bake 10 more minutes, turn over and bake 10 more. They'll be soft in the middle but will harden as they cool.
- Cool completely on a wire rack.
