Cappuccino Biscotti

Cappuccino biscotti

2 cups flour
2 envelopes of cappuccino mix (I used Nescafe instant)
1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup of granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 cup of finely chopped nuts (I used pecans, hazelnuts would be great, too!)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Beat butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla in a large bowl with electric mixer until well blended. Gradually beat in dry ingredients; flour, cappuccino mix, baking powder and salt. Stir in nuts.  Divide dough into 2 equal portions.  Shape into 2 logs approximately 14 inches long, (I use a floured surface and sort of roll and shape them) and place on cookie sheet covered with parchment (about 2 inches apart).  Bake 25 minutes at 325, or until lightly browned.  Remove from cookie sheet, cool about 5-10 minutes.  Put on large cutting board, and slice the logs on a diagonal about 3/4 inches wide.  Place on cookie sheet, and bake again for about 10 minutes, or until slightly dry.
