I’m so in love with making biscotti. For me, it’s better than baking cookies.
Yes, I just said that aloud.
But think about it. Biscotti is like a crunchy cookie. A cookie that you can eat for breakfast. Cookies that are BREAKFAST approved!
Plus, since I love having coffee in the morning (okay, and at noon, night, and whenever), biscotti is the perfect “dipper.” It’s also great dunked in tea or hot cocoa.
Who needs to dunk chocolate chip cookies when you have fresh biscotti on hand?! (okay, again, did I just say that aloud???)
For today’s flavor, I wanted to make something that would be tasty for a Valentine’s Day breakfast. It’s not pink. But it IS cherry.
Adding in dried cherries gives a nice chewy texture with the crunchy biscotti. I also added almond extract to the dough. I love almond extract. I would put it in all my recipes if that wasn’t weird.
I thought about adding some chopped almonds either to the dough or to sprinkle on top, but decided against it. The biscotti is crunchy enough, and with the dried cherries I really wanted those to shine a little brighter.
Biscotti is never complete until it’s dunked or drizzled with chocolate. (unless it’s snickerdoodle biscotti, which is lovely with a healthy dose of cinnamon sugar sprinkles.) Dipping the bottoms in Vanilla Candiquik (or almond bark) is the perfect pairing for this recipe.
It’s hard to believe I used to be afraid of making biscotti. I thought it seemed so difficult. It’s NOT. I promise! Once you start making it, you may get addicted like me!
I’ve got a list of flavors I still want to make, but would love to hear from YOU about the flavor you enjoy most? What would you like to see next? I’m taking notes…
