I’m feeling a bit ambitious. I mean, it’s not like I need to add more work to my plate, but I decided last night to really kick it up a notch this month! Why not? It’s the holidays, right? So, like what you see in the magazines and other fantastic websites and blogs, I am going to feature a new cookie for 25 Days of Cookies! And to kick it off, especially after Thanksgiving and too much to eat, I’m featuring Chocolate Biscotti with Cranberries & Macadamia Nuts!
Biscottis are not your typical cookie. They tend to be dry and BIG! But, that just makes them perfect for dunking: in your coffee, in your tea, in your milk…. I was surprised to see that my kids liked these. Of course, they are sweet and have chocolate: NO BRAINER!
And, because they aren’t super sugary, biscotti’s are a great way to indulge your sweet tooth without overloading on sugar. Make the recipe your own by choosing your own favorite combination of nuts and dried fruit.
Biscottis aren’t too difficult to bake and don’t require much fuss to decorate. You roll the dough into a log, bake it once, let it cool, cut into smaller pieces and then bake again. You can drizzle your biscotti with white chocolate if you want, but I like the way the macadamia nuts & cranberries are the star of the show.
