This Monday it´s the final post of Merry Mondays! It was a pleasure to participate! Thank’s Claire and Taylor for the opportunity of learning new recipes and knowing new amazing blogs!

This Monday the challenge was to make a cinnamon recipe. I prepared this cinnamon dry figs biscotti that I adapted from here.This is so good and perfect for Christmas! The cinnamon and orange smelling all around the kitchen and the dry fruit gives a Christmas touch. And is wonderful with a cup of coffee!



I’ve made my Christmas baking last Thursday and at afternoon of Christmas Eve we set a beautiful table with all the goodies and had coffee at backyard! Surely we created a new Christmas tradition at my home!
Ingredients:
¾ cup sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 eggs
1 ½ ts baking powder
2 oranges zest
250g chopped dry figs
1 ts cinnamon

Pre-heat the oven at 350ºF. In a bowl, combine sugar, flour, cinnamon and baking powder. Set aside. In another bowl mix the eggs and the orange zest. Add the dry ingredients mixture. Add chopped dry figs. Flour the table and separate the dough in two halves. Butter and flour a pan, put the 2 halves of dough and smash the top. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Remove from the oven, and let it cool. Slice in ½ inch thick pieces. Bake for 15 minutes each side.
