Chocolate Biscotti for the Holidays
About this Cook
A teenager who is getting into "the whole cooking thing." I love to bake most of all - especially if chocolate is involved.
My favorite things to cook
Muffins, cookies, swiss chard, macaroni and cheese, cake, hummus... pretty much anything without meat or fish.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom is the real cook in the family. She's great with any type food, but especially Korean. It's always a treat when she cooks us up a Korean feast (especially if there's sushi, another food she makes so well!)
My cooking triumphs
Before I choose vegetarianism, I successfully made an Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie all by myself. The title might not make it sound like a huge triumph, but it was, to me. So far.
My cooking tragedies
Note to self: never substitute a tube pan with a silicone sunflower-shaped cake mold. I learned the hard way, when trying to bake a banana cake for my mom's birthday. I ended up needing her help, and the center of the cake never cooked through. It ended up okay, though - we just tore off the cooked chunks and threw out the middle.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
Pretty good. The texture is pretty grainy and the cookies don't hold together too well, but they're great for a quick dessert and go great with chocolate!

Chocolate Orange Cookies
Delish. I made pinwheel cookies like shown in one of the photos by rolling out each type of dough into sheets, stacking them, then rolling into a log. Chill the log for ~1 hour in the fridge, and then it'll be super easy to cut into centimeter-thick cookies before baking! Adding a tad more flour (or using lots of flour if rolling them out) helps for working with the dough.

Cream Cheese Frosting II
Yum! We put HALF the sugar and it tasted delicious. I'm not sure how everyone else can stand it with the full amount of sugar - any more than half and it would have been awfully sweet!
