SESAME BISCOTTI

Nothing is more “Dunkable” than a Biscotti! It holds up beautifully when dunked in:

–        Coffee/Espresso

–        Tea

–        Hot Chocolate

But is also yummy alone, especially if you like crunchy cookies, as appose to a cake-like cookie. Biscotti can be made out of such a variety of ingredients, but the delicate, exotic flavor of Sesame Seeds give these biscottis a memorable flavor.

The procedure is simple, and is really nothing more than a “twice-cooked cookie.”

Ingredients

–      Sesame Seeds – 1 cup, either the pressed sesame seeds left over from making Nut/Seed Milk, or freshly ground

–       Sugar – ¾ cup

–        Egg – 1

–        Butter – 1 stick, melted

–        Flour – 2 cups

–        Baking powder – ½ teaspoon

–        Cinnamon – ½ teaspoon, or ¼ teaspoon Cardamom

–        Salt – ¼ teaspoon

–        Powdered sugar for final dusting

Instructions

Mix all ingredients (except dusting sugar) until thick paste forms. Dump the entire sticky dough onto a sheet of parchment paper. Roll into a log, in the wrap. Chill (30 minutes or over night).

Oven: 350. Bake log (unwrapped) for 30 minutes. Cool.

Cut into ½ inch slices.

Cut side down on parchment (so they don’t stick, and clean-up is easy)

Bake 20/25 minutes or until golden. Dust Powdered sugar if you like, though yummy alone!
