    I have three rolls of biscotti in the oven doing the first baking . . . for the dogs, lol.

    Did some research on basic biscotti and what makes it crunchiest (using only the egg for binder, with no oil) and there is now a batch of oat bran flour, wheat flour and polenta molasses gingerbread biscotti baking.

    If the reaction to the raw dough is any indication, it should be a hit.

    Smells WONDERFUL . . . .

    Tallulah's Southern Molasses Biscotti

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

    Grease/spray a cookie sheet

    Roughly, I used

    2/3 cup dark molasses
    3/4 tsp sea salt
    4 beaten eggs
    1/8 cup organic turbinado sugar (they are TREATS, lol, and that took the edge off the molasses)

    Combine those ingredients in a bowl

    In a separate bowl:

    1 1/2 cups oat bran flour
    1 3/4 cups wheat flour
    1 cup polenta
    2 tsp ground ginger
    1 tsp cinnamon
    3 rounded tsp. baking powder

    Stir together thoroughly.

    Make a well in the center and add the liquid ingredients, mixing until just moistened. If you need some extra moisture, you can add some milk. I used condensed, as it's a little richer.

    Divide the dough into three parts.

    Spread some polenta on a flat surface and roll out each part of the dough into a long tube about the length of your cookie sheet.

    Bake for about 35 minutes

    Remove from the oven. LEAVE THE OVEN ON.

    When the biscotti is cool enough to handle, slice it (a bread knife seems to work best) into approx 3/8 inch wide cookies. Lay them out separately on the cookie sheet and bake about 7 - 10 minutes, take 'em out, flip 'em over and bake the other side for about 5 - 7 minutes.

    Cool on racks.

    When completely cool, store in airtight containers.

    I've bought the Biscotti made by 3 Dog Bakery, and my dogs loved them. : D I'm going to try to make these... I will probably ruin them the first several tries.

    I didn't count them, GO, but I had three pretty long rolls. I ended up with a couple of medium sized (about two and a half times the sandwich size) containers.

    You can roll it into logs with a smaller diameter or cut the logs in half lengthwise if you want smaller cookies too.

    I think I just about figured out how to make some good peanut butter truffles for them too, this morning. I'll have to try it later and let you know how they come out.
