Cheddar Chive Biscotti

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup coarsely grated cheddar cheese
2 large eggs
1/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives


Heat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease a baking sheet. In a medium
bowl mix together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt. Stir in
the Cheddar cheese and set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar, vegetable oil, and chives.
Stir in Hour mixture until a soft dough forms. Shape dough on baking
sheet into a 13-inch-long log. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until golden
and firm in center. Remove log from oven; cool about 15 minutes. Reduce
oven temperature to 300 F.

Slice log crosswise diagonally into 1/2-inch-thick pieces. Arrange slices on wire cooling racks and return to oven for 10 minutes or until crisp. Cool completely and store in an airtight container.
