sometimes i make biscotti

My good friend Kat taught me how to enjoy and then to make biscotti. I never thought I liked biscotti until Kat brought some to work a couple years back and then I changed my mind. My favorite has orange zest, pistachios and chocolate chips. The recipe is here. It took me a few batches to master the process but these days a batch of biscotti is no problem! The nice part about the recipe is that it's a base for any additions you want. I omit the currants and replace the white chocolate with semi-sweet. Why does white chocolate even exist?

Those look gorgeous. I always wanted to make biscotti, but always thought it would be too complicated for me. Maybe I should give it a try. I like them with almonds, but I probably would like them with chocolate as well, orange sounds good too. I have never tried them with anything but different kinds of nuts - or plain.

One time I had Biscotti that you made and it was SO DELICIOUS! I totally wish I could have some of that. Instead, I just had to eat the Delta Airlines Biscotti last night (not SO DELICIOUS).

I'm glad someone else doesn't like white chocolate.

Love that biscotti! I took home about 7 bags from your bridal shower and ate them all in a day and half! Glad you posted the recipe. I'll have to give it a try.

Adorable necklace you're wearing, Bets. Love it! Also, if you're making Trader Joe's run, I'd love some Sweet & Salty trail mix.
Thanks! Love you!
