APPLE CINNAMON BISCOTTI
2 Cups of Flour
2 Tsp Baking Powder
1/2 Cups of Sugar
1 Tsp Salt.
1 Tsp Ground Cinnamon
2 Tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
2 Eggs (Room Tempreture)
6 Tsp Butter (Room Tempreture)
1 Cups Apple (cored and diced)
Pre-heat your oven to 162 degree C, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium sized bowl, combine the dry ingredients save for the sugar.
In another, the wet - but not the butter.
In a third bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add the wet mixture. Mix well. Then add the dry, followed by the diced apple.
Dump onto a well floured counter and massage until it's semi-dough like.
Break into two halves and place each one on the parchment lined baking sheet.
Shape into logs, about 1 1/2" thick and sprinkle with a little extra sugar.
Bake in hot oven for 25 - 30 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool about 15 minutes. Slice the logs at an angle. Place back in the oven and bake a further 20 - 25 minutes. Remove from the heat. Place biscotti pieces on wire racks to cool completely before serving.
Serve with a big cup of tea or coffee.
