Simple Vanilla Biscotti 

My first ever try at biscotti.  Easier than I expected.  

You will need: 
   1/2 cup light olive oil
   1 cup sugar
   3 1/4 cup flour
   3 eggs
   1 tablespoon baking powder
   1 tablespoon vanilla bean 
   Candy melts
   Piping bag to drizzle candy melts
* I recently discovered pure vanilla bean paste at Sur La Table.  I plan to try this next time.  Also plan to use more than the recipe calls for.  

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat together the oil, eggs, sugar and vanilla until well blended. Combine the flour and baking powder, stir into the egg mixture to form a heavy dough. Divide dough into two pieces. Form each piece into a roll as long as your cookie sheet. Place roll onto the prepared cookie sheet, and press down to 1/2 inch thickness.
  3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown. Remove from the baking sheet to cool on a wire rack. When The cookies are cool enough to handle, slice each one crosswise into 1/2 inch slices. Place the slices cut side up back onto the baking sheet. Bake for an additional 6 to 10 minutes on each side. Slices should be lightly toasted.
  4.  Once cooled you can decorate with the candy melt of your choice.  Simply melt candy in a microwave safe bowl.  Make sure its soft, but not too hot so you can put it in a piping bag.  After you fill the bag cut a very small piece of the tip off.  Squeeze over the top of your cookies.  Let them set up for a bit.  Then Enjoy!
