I’m becoming more of a tea drinker.  Well, really, a chai drinker.  The past few weekends I’ve been making it on Saturday and Sunday afternoons when we’re just lazing around, reading or watching TV.  I like to make it extra strong, letting it steep for as long as we can stand it and then adding in hot milk and honey.  I’m so into the flavors, I’m toying with the idea of having chai instead coffee in the morning…. more about that later.

In my mind tea and biscotti go hand in hand, so I decided to make some. I think biscotti is best when there aren’t too many competing flavors, so I settled on Joy the Baker’s Cinnamon Sugar Biscotti.* This cookie is the cinnamon sugar toast version of biscotti, hitting all the notes of butter, spice, and sweetness.  It’s divine and pairs perfectly with tea. I’m looking forward to dunking this in my chai all weekend.

*Joy’s recipe directs you to sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture onto the individual biscotti for the second round of baking.  I found my sweet enough already, so I left them as is.

  2. I love this post and the recipe you used for cinnamon sugar biscotti. I’ve been meaning to make some for quite a while and just haven’t gotten around to it yet — perhaps this just gave me the motivation I needed. Thanks!
