Gretchen of Canela and Comino chose this week's recipe for biscotti. The complete recipe is on her blog, which has gorgeous photos and great food - be sure to check it out. And for those who haven't heard, the Tuesdays with Dorie group will no longer be accepting new members after October 31st. So if you want to join in all the baking fun, you better join soon. Trust me, you won't be sorry! It's a blast!
I was so excited to make this biscotti. In the words of Dorie, I decided to "play around" and make a plain lemon version by adding lemon zest to the mixture. Making biscotti was a first for me and as I was making it I thought, hmmph... this is easy! I still can't get over how quick it was and how smoothly the whole process went.
Here's my marching band fresh out of the oven:
Sadly enough, when I told my husband that I was making biscotti, he said "you're making WHAT?" Apparently biscotti is not a man thing because he totally had no clue what I was talking about despite my attempts to explain it. He only seemed interested when I told him he could eat some for breakfast with his coffee. Hey, whatever works.
These are absolutely delicious and have such a great lemon flavor. Why haven't I made these before?!?
