Today I am sharing how to make cinnamon sugar biscotti with you!

I remember eating cinnamon/sugar toast as a kid and the feeling it gave me. Do you? I was so happy every time my mom gave us this as a snack.

Most times we had this on the cold days after playing outside in the snow. We came inside to dry off and get a warm snack along with hot chocolate and of course marshmallows!

Now the combination of cinnamon sugar is readily available in stores.  However, it’s not recommended to use for this recipe.

Well, this is the best cinnamon sugar biscotti! If you did enjoy cinnamon/sugar toast as a child, this recipe is a keeper.
