Coconut Cranberry Biscotti

Coconut Cranberry Biscotti

Biscotti are one of my favorite cookies to make for a couple of reasons. They’re not too difficult to make, they keep extremely well and they always taste better than store bought. I also like being able to put my own flavor twists on biscotti, as the options when you buy them in a store are often quite limited. That isn’t to say that I ... Read More »

Muffin Biscotti

Most muffin recipes make a dozen muffins. Sometimes I can get through the whole dozen – with a little help, of course – and sometimes I just can’t. Leftover muffins are usually good for a day or two, but most don’t hold up well longer than that. One solution is to freeze them when they are fresh and defrost them when you want to eat ...

Cherry Garcia Biscotti

Oatmeal Cookie Biscotti

The isn’t much I can say about these. The spicy taste of an oatmeal cookie with the crunchiness and longevity of a biscotti. How can you go wrong? The oatmeal gives the cookie an even lighter texture than usual, so I found that dipping these was unnecessary (though still delightful). This is definately a new variation on my usual recipes that I will use again ... Read More »
