Biscotti

1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup white sugar
3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3 eggs
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon vanilla extract 

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).    Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, beat together the oil, eggs, sugar and vanilla flavoring until well blended. Combine the flour and baking powder, stir into the egg mixture to form a heavy dough. Divide dough into two pieces. Form each piece into a roll as long as your cookie sheet. Place roll onto the prepared cookie sheet, and press down to 1/2 inch thickness.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown.  Remove from the baking sheet to cool on a wire rack. When The cookies are cool enough to handle, slice each one crosswise into 1/2 inch slices. Place the slices cut side up back onto the baking sheet. Bake for an additional 6 to 10 minutes on each side. Slices should be lightly toasted.
 
I just made this biscotti recipe for the first time today, and it was
really good.  They're not too sweet, which is nice.  I like to give
my kids snacks that are as healthy as possible.  I went ahead and
baked most of them, but just not as long as the recipe calls for, and
they're delicious, and not too hard.  I also added about 1/2 cup
chocolate chips to the dough, which added a bit of sweetness.  You
could also add some chopped pecans or almonds, or substitute almond
or butterscotch extract for the vanilla.
