Polenta Biscotti










Biscottis are one of my favorites for a  coffe or tea I love dip them in tea, is like a cookie but not at all is better I think, and the best each biscotti only have 58 calories (this recipe) others you can add chocolatte chips or almonds etc.
But I think that I love these only with the polenta:)



with honey:)

Whisk flour, sugar,cornmeal or polenta, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
Whisk eggs, oil and vanilla in another bowl  until frothy and well combined.
Add the egg mixture  to the flour mixture and stir with a spoon until a soft dough forms.

Place the longs in a cutting board and slice diagonally  slices using a serrated knife.
Divide the biscotti in between the baking sheets.
Return them to the oven  and bake until lightly colored and dry
(1bout 18 minutes)
Transfer to wire racks to cool (the biscotti will be crisp as they cool)
