In this house, biscotti is very much a seasonal cookie. It’s our tradition. “We” (ha!) make them dozens and dozens of Red, White, and Green Biscotti each December to include as part of our Christmas goodie baskets. I’m usually dancing around the kitchen, rocking out to Christmas music in fur-trimmed red and green argyle socks, turning out batch after batch of dough while The Foodie Groom… I have no idea what he usually does while I’m baking. I’m pretty sure he’s he’s at least home 🙂
So when I was tasked to make biscotti as part of Project Pastry Queen in November? I was a day late and two eggs short, but I dug out the Christmas socks and had fun. I’m also ready to put up our Christmas tree!
The recipe makes a solid biscotti. I flavored mine with walnuts, almond extract, white chocolate, and cranberries. Thanks to Kalyna for picking a recipe to get me in the holiday spirit. Head over to the Project Pastry Queen blogroll to check out the biscotti from the other members. Next week, we’re doing homemade granola. Yum!
