Hello! I'm honored to contribute to Sugar Rush 2013! My name is Megan and I blog over at Homemade Ginger. I love coming up with DIY home decor projects, crafting up sewing projects for my daughters and whipping up homemade natural cleaners as well as trying out new recipes. Come over and say hi and feel free to visit my Facebook and Pinterest page as well!
Today I'm sharing a delicious treat that will make your house smell absolutely amazing. These cinnamon biscotti make such a lovely gift or just to have on hand to enjoy with a cup of tea or coffee. These little cookies are filled with warm cinnamon and vanilla flavors as well as bits of pecan and white chocolate chips. Delicous!
6 Tbs Butter
3/4 C Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
2 C Flour
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 C White Chocolate Chips
1/2 C Chopped Pecans
Cream the butter and sugar together. Then add the eggs and vanilla and mix. Add in flour, baking powder and cinnamon until mixed well. Gently mix in the pecans and chocolate chips. Divide the dough in half and form into 2 logs. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Let them cool for 15 minutes. Then slice the logs diagonally. Lay the pieces flat and bake for another 20 minutes. Enjoy!
The dough comes together really easily and quickly. You want to form them into flat logs.
I like to line my baking sheet with parchment paper.
Here's what they will look like after baking:
Slice the logs diagonally with a serrated knife.
Arrange them on the baking sheet and bake again for another 20 minutes or so.
These are seriously so yummy. I love that they aren't overly sweet.
Enjoy with a hot cup of tea!
Try to resist the temptation to eat them for breakfast.
Thanks so much for letting me be a part of Sugar Rush 2013,
