WHO NEEDS A MAN ON VALENTINE’S DAY BISCOTTI
|Butter||3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs), softened|
|Vanilla extract||1 Teaspoon|
|All purpose flour||2 1⁄2 Cup (40 tbs)|
|Baking powder||1 Teaspoon|
|Flaked hazelnuts||1 Cup (16 tbs), roasted at 325°f (160°c) for 5-7 minutes (Filberts)|
|Sugar||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
|Cinnamon||3 Teaspoon (Combine Together For Cinnamon Sugar)|
|Cinnamon||3 Teaspoon, combine with sugar together for cinnamon sugar.|
Preheat oven to 350˚F (175˚C)
In a medium bowl, mix together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
In a separate bowl sift the dry ingredients; mix into the wet mixture. Stir in the hazelnuts. Dough will be thick.
Shape dough into 2 separate logs. Place logs onto lined cookie sheet and flatten out to ¾ inch thick logs. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Bake for 30 minutes until set. Remove from oven, cool on baking racks. When cool enough to touch, slice loaves into ½ inch thick slices. Place slices back on cookie sheet. Bake for an additional 5-7 min per side.
Let cool and enjoy!
