Ginger Orange Biscotti

These are really hard texture biscotti.  When you dip them in a hot liquid, they are the perfect texture.

3/4 Cup All Purpose Flour
1 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Cornmeal
2 Teaspoons Ground Ginger
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
Equivalent of 3 Eggs, Vegan Replacement
Zest of 1 Orange
Juice of 1 Orange

Unbaked logs

3.  Divide the dough in half.  Form each piece into a 14 X 1 1/2 inch log.  Place the logs on the baking sheet.

4.  Bake 25 minutes, until firm enough to cut.  Cool in to the pan.  Decrease the oven temperature to 300 F.

5.  Slice the logs into 1/2 inch thick cookies.  Arrange cut side down on 2 baking sheets lined with parchment paper.  Bake until golden brown and crisp, 45 minutes.  If they are not crisp enough after 45 minutes.  Turn off the oven heat and let them sit in the oven for up to 30 minutes.  Transfer the biscotti to a wire rack to cool
