Directions

Granola:

Preheat oven 325 degrees

Biscotti Dough:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

Place nuts on a shallow cooking sheet and toast in the oven for about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside to cool. In a mixing bowl combine butter and sugar and cream until ligh and fluffy. Beat in honey, eggs and vanilla. I a small bowl combine all the dry ingredients, except the granola and nuts. Add to the creamed mixture and stir just until blended. Stir in nuts and granola.

Divide dough in half. On a greased and floured baking sheet, pat dough into 2 logs about 1/2 inch high, 2 inches wide and about 14 inches long, at least 3 inches apart. You may need to flout your hands to keep the dough from sticking to them. Bake for about 25 minutes on the middle rack of the oven or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes, transfer to a wire rack and let cool 5 minutes more. Move to a cutting board. Using a SERRATED KNIFE cut each log diagonally at a 45 degree angle about 1/2 inch thick. Place the slices, cut side down, back onto the cookie sheet and bake again for about 5 minutes, turn cookies over and bake another 5 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.

If you like a softer cookie, you can omit the second baking after slicing.

Store in an air tight container.
