  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup flavored ground coffee (such as hazelnut)
  • 2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Make It

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with nonstick aluminum foil.

2. Beat butter and sugar in bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Stir in vanilla.

3. Place coffee in a food processor and grind for about 2 minutes. Add flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon and salt. Pulse to blend. Add to butter mixture; stir until smooth. Stir in hazelnuts and cinnamon chips; mix well.

4. Divide dough in half. With floured hands, place half on prepared baking sheet. Pat into a 12 x 2-1/2-inch log, flattening top slightly. Repeat with second half, placing on baking sheet 2 inches from first.

5. Bake at 350 degrees F for 28 to 30 minutes, or until browned around edges. Remove from oven. Cool logs 10 minutes. Place on cutting board.

6. Cut logs diagonally into 1/2-inch-thick slices for a total of 32. Place slices, cut-side down, on baking sheet. Bake 15 to 18 minutes; transfer to rack to cool.
