Biscotti is my favorite gift to give to all of the helpers in our life. This Snickerdoodle Biscotti is not only delicious, but also light in calories. Wrap the biscotti in clear party favor bags, tie with festive ribbon, and place in a pretty mug for those special people in your life!


preparation time

cook time




2.75 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

0.25 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoons cream of tartar

1 teaspoons cinnamon

1 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 teaspoons vanilla extract

3 large eggs

2 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoons cinnamon

1 large egg white


Step 1

Preheat Oven to 350. Measure flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and cream of tartar in a large mixing bow bowl. Mix Oil Vanilla and whole eggs in a small bowl and add to the large bowl, your dough will be dry and quite crumbly. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead until it pulls together into a ball. Divide in half. Shape each portion into a roll about 8 inches long, and place them six or so inches apart on a cookie sheet lined with parchment. Flatten each roll to 1 inch thick. Combine the 2 tablespoons Sugar and cinnamon, then gently brush the tops of the rolls with the egg white and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

Step 2

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Remove from the sheet and cool for 15 minutes. Cut diagonally into 1/2 inch slices and lay them cut sides down on the cookie sheet again. Reduce oven temp to 325 and then bake 10 more minutes, turn over and bake 10 more. They'll be soft in the middle but will harden as they cool. Cool completely on a wire rack and store in an airtight container.
