Happy Birthday Dad!
We all celebrate birthdays in different ways but if I know anything about my dad, it's that he's munching on some biscotti this morning along with his coffee. Since we can't be with my dad today, we decided to celebrate his birthday with our own little biscotti party.
We made 7 different kinds of biscotti and one of Courtney's favorites was the cinnamon sugar biscotti. This recipe came from chocolatechocolateandmore.com. It reminds me of a super crunchy snickerdoodle cookie.
Cinnamon Sugar Biscotti
6 tablespoons butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg plus 1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon butter extract (can use vanilla or almond also)
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 egg, beaten
Remove from oven and while still warm, slice diagonally into 3/4 to 1 inch slices. Place slices back on baking tray. Place back in oven for 15 minutes, until just golden.
Let cool completely then store in air tight container.
For best results, enjoy with a steaming cup of coffee.
Here's to you dad - Happy Birthday - I love you.
