Mochaccino biscotti

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
3½ cup Cake flour
1 tablespoon Baking powder
2 tablespoons Instant coffee powder; espresso
2 tablespoons Cocoa powder; Dutch-process
1 teaspoon Ground cinnamon
2 larges Eggs; at room temperature
2 larges Egg whites; at room temperature
¾ cup Sugar
2 teaspoons Vanilla extract
1 large Egg white; lightly beaten

Adjust the oven rack to center of oven; preheat to 350F.

Line a 14 x 17 cookie sheet with parchment paper; set aside.

Sift dry ingredients into a medium bowl.

Place whole eggs, 2 egg whites, and sugar in bowl of electric mixer. Beat on high speed until thick and lemony, about 4 minutes. Stop machine and scrape down bowl with rubber spatula. Add vanilla and beat on low speed until blended, about 10 seconds. Add flour mixture and beat on low speed until dough starts to come together in a crumbly mass, about 30 seconds.

Turn dough onto a lightly floured work surface (dough will be slightly sticky). With lightly floured hands, gently knead several ties until dough begins to hold together in a satiny mass; divide dough into thirds. Shape into 3 ropes, approximately 11 inches long. Place ropes 2½ inches apart on lined pan. With fingertips , lightly flatten each into a log ½ inch high, 2 inches wide, and 13 inches long. Brush logs with lightly beaten egg white.

Bake in preheated oven until logs are golden and firm to the touch, about 25 minutes. Place cookie sheet n wire rack and cool for 8 minutes. Lower oven temperature to 325F. Transfer logs to cutting board. Leave parchment on baking sheet. With a serrated knife, cut logs crosswise at a slight diagonal into ½-inch slices. Place half of the slices cut side down on pan, spacing them ½ inch apart. Return pan to oven and bake until surfaces are lightly toasted, about 7 minutes on each side. Transfer biscotti to wire rack and cool completely. Reline pan with fresh parchment and repeat with remaining slices. Biscotti can be stored in a tin lined with wax paper for 3 weeks.
