Relax after a long day with a sweet treat made with the soothing taste of chamomile. These biscotti cookies are the perfect late night snack to ease you peacefully into bedtime!1 h 2
- 2 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 2/3 c. sugar
- 2 eggs
- 3 tbsp. honey
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 2 tbsp. orange zest
- 1 tbsp. strong brewed chamomile tea
- 1 c. powdered sugar
- 2 tbsp. strong brewed chamomile tea (hot)
Preheat oven to 350°F and adjust rack to middle position.
In a mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together sugar and eggs to a light yellow color. Stir in honey, vanilla, zest, and tea. Add in dry ingredients, folding batter together until just combined.
Divide batter into two equal sections. With floured hands to prevent sticking, form each half into a log (approximately 3" wide by 3/4" high) and place lengthwise on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Be sure to place logs at least 1" apart from each other.
Bake logs for 35 min.
Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 min.
Reduce oven temperature to 325�F.
Using a serrated knife, cut logs diagonally into 1/2" thick slices (discarding ends). Lay slices on their sides on the cookie sheet being careful not to overcrowd the tray. Return to oven and bake for another 15 min., flipping the slices over once halfway through.
Remove cookies from the oven and allow to cool.
You can enjoy as is or drizzle with chamomile spiked icing. To make the icing, simply stir together powdered sugar with hot tea and drizzle over cookies with a fork.
