I saw snow flurries today! Real - actual - authentic - snow. Flurries might be an exaggeration but there were definitely tiny white flakes blowing across the hood of my car this afternoon. I was excited and disappointed at the same time - thrilled to see the snow but sorry that there was absolutely no way for me to capture the almost microscopic white precipitation on my camera phone.
Just seeing the blowing flakes outside my car window made me shiver inside my nice warm car. As soon as I got home, I made a nice hot pot of coffee to warm myself up. So here I sit, working at my computer with a steaming cup of hot coffee in front of me to keep me warm. Oh, and there just might be a couple of biscotti beside that nice warm coffee too. (They totally aid in the warming process.)
2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon instant coffee ganules
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup cold butter
1 cup chocolate chips
2 Tablespoons coffee liqueur
Combine flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, coffee granules, cinnamon and salt in food processor.
Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Beat in eggs and coffee liqueur.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Shape dough into 2 nine by two inch logs and place on a silpat lined baking sheet.
Bake 30 minutes at 350.
Slice diagonally with a sharp knife.
Lay slices on baking sheet and bake 10 more minutes on each side.
Pour yourself a hot cup of coffee and start dipping your espresso biscotti. The most delicious way to stay warm on this chilly day.
