Chocolate Biscotti Cookies
Is anyone else in the heartland feeling the sudden freeze? The frost has definitely found us in MN.
To all my beautiful Californian family & friends: I love you dearly and miss you more than you know…but I just can’t read any more Facebook posts about your “weather” out there. Because it makes me want to cry and go stare longingly at my collection of flip flops.
I need cookies. Double Chocolate Biscotti cookies to the rescue.
I know many people in our current Midwestern stomping ground who are enjoying the sudden blanket of heavy snow today. True, I do enjoy how pristine and beautiful fresh snow can be. To say the kids were excited is an understatement. They immediately donned their rugged snow gear and threw themselves into the thick white powder, and “helped” Daddy shovel.
Our biscotti cookie recipe is easier than you’d think
For those mornings or afternoons when you can stay in and sip on a hot mug of coffee or tea… bring in these double chocolate Biscotti cookies. They are the perfect dunking cookie. I used to think Biscotti would be tricky to make from scratch, but I started making these a few years ago and fell in love with homemade Biscotti.
They are pretty straighforward, extremely flexible (any fave add-ins would be yummy), and best of all? They keep so, so well. Biscotti is classically crisp in texture (dunking perfection) and they stay nicely crunchy at room temp for days. Or frozen for much longer.
Biscotti Cookies are perfect food gifts, transport well, and freeze well
This recipe will make enough Biscotti to give away as yummy Christmas treats, or you can keep some in the freezer for a quick morning or afternoon treat when you need it. In fact, I just made a batch to give to my girlfriend’s lovely family. There was enough leftover to go with Hubby’s coffee at breakfast. And kids’ afternoon snack. And my breakfast + snack.
To make it Christmas-y, I added dried cranberries. They are a perfect addition for a holiday breakfast/brunch or cookie exchange. Enjoy these cookies, stay warm, and romp a little in the snow. If you’re lucky enough to get snow 🙂Print
