Spicy Chai Biscotti

Spicy Chai Biscotti was the final recipe I made during my night of Biscotti Madness. I loved their spicy, gingery taste.

Again, I found the recipe on Joelen's Culinary Adventures. If you haven't checked out her site, please do. She (and her site) are amazing.

To find the spice, look in the spice aisle. I want to save you the time I spent too much time looking in the tea and coffee aisle. Whoops.

Spicy Chai Biscotti
(Source: Joelen's Culinary Adventures)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated white sugar
3 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup Chai spice powder

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl lightly beat the eggs and extracts together. Set aside.
In a bowl of your stand mixer (or with a hand mixer) combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and Chai spice powder.
Beat until blended (about 30 seconds).
Gradually add the egg mixture and beat until a dough forms. With floured hands divide dough in half.
On a lightly floured surface roll dough into a log about 10 inches long and 3 inches wide.
Transfer log to the prepared baking sheet and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until firm to the touch. The logs will spread during baking.
Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack for about 10 minutes.
Transfer log to a cutting board and using a serrated knife, cut log into slices 1/2 inch thick on the diagonal.
Arrange evenly on baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes, turn slices over, and bake another 10 minutes or until firm to the touch.
Remove from oven and let cool.
