2 1/4 c. flour
1 c. sugar
4 Tbsp. cocoa
1 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 c. butter, softened (2 sticks)
2 eggs, divided: one for batter, one for egg wash
pearl sugar for decoration
This Swedish cookie is sort of like biscotti - only it just bakes once. So I guess that would make it uniscotti. Rich and chocolatey, the pearl sugar gives it a little crunch, the egg wash a little shine.
Yield: about 6 doz.
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Into a medium bowl, sift together flour, cocoa and baking powder. Add sugar.
Knead in vanilla, butter and 1 egg until a smooth dough forms.
Divide dough into six equal parts. Form each part into a log about a finger thick. Press the top of the log to flatten slightly.
Break the other egg into a small bowl. Beat lightly. Brush onto the waiting dough. Sprinkle liberally with pearl sugar.
Bake 15 min. at 400°F. Use the parchment paper to lift the logs off the baking sheet and allow to cool.
When cool, cut diagonally into slices.
Serve with coffee.
