Double Chocolate Thin Biscotti

by on July 11, 2014 · 0 comments


I’m still on a thin sliced biscotti kick, so here’s another version for you. This one is double chocolate and uses assorted nuts, white chips and chocolate chips. For the chocolate base, I just added 1 oz of melted unsweetened chocolate. Another change I made was to halve the recipe (the full batch is below) […]

Biscotti Thins

This is one of my all-time favorite cookie recipes, though I can’t say I’ve ever made it the same way twice. These thinly sliced biscotti can be made with almost any kind of chopped dried fruit, nut, candy and flavorings. This version is pretty basic and calls for pecans, white chips and dried cranberries – […]

Chocolate Pistachio Thins

Chocolate Pistachio Thins

Since tomorrow is the first day of school, I decided to make today’s cookies “lunchbox worthy”.   They’re sweet enough to qualify as a dessert, but have some nutritional value: protein from the egg whites, a mixture of good fats and fiber from the nuts, plus antioxidants from the cocoa powder. Shaped like Melba toast, but […]

Cherry Biscotti

Today’s cookies were made with some dried fruit I received from NatureBox, a company that delivers “nutritionist approved” treats to your door. Fuzz and I kept stopping by their booth at BlogHer to mooch free samples, so I felt it was only fair to give them a shout out. Plus, their dried berries are excellent. […]

I feel like I should be posting a flag cake or something more patriotic, but the truth is all I really wanted to eat this weekend was biscotti.  Well, and brownies; but the brownies didn’t turn out very well. So here’s the biscotti recipe which is VERY easy and good. It’s also […]

pink lemonade biscotti

It seems like forever since I last posted an actual cookie, so here’s one from this morning. I needed something pink and cheery and these fit the bill. They’re fairly lemony with the tablespoon of lemon zest, but if you want to try adding something like a bit of pink lemonade powder or …

Banana Bread Biscotti

Today’s recipe is one I baked last week and have been eating ever since. It evolved from the fact I felt like baking banana bread, but knew no one would eat it but me and thus, decided to make a type of “banana bread” that would stay fresh for a long, long time. Taking a […]

Red Velvet Biscotti

Okay, so you might not find this type of biscotti in Florence (or anywhere else in Italy, for that matter), but it sure was fun to make! It’s a striking red color (perfect for Christmas), and the flavor is somewhat like red velvet cake, but leaning more towards chocolate. As a bonus, this recipe is […]
