Description

Enjoy the tangy taste of orange, warmed with a hint of cinnamon and served up in a crispy biscotti. Dip in coffee or tea or enjoy as a dessert or snack.

Directions

  1. Spray 2 baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Beat sugar and unsalted butter in a large bowl until well blended.
  3. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each.
  4. Beat in orange peel and vanilla.
  5. Mix flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a medium-size bowl.
  6. Add dry ingredients to butter mixture and mix until incorporated.
  7. Divide dough in half. Place each half on a prepared sheet. With lightly floured hands, form each half into a log shape that is 3 inches wide by three quarters of an inch high. Bake until dough logs are firm to the touch, about 35 minutes.
