Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: May 29, 2013
I have made this recipe about 10 times, also gave it out to several friends, every one seems to love it, the base is great. You can add more nuts or less, more cranberries or less, you can also modify with almonds & chocolate chunks, I have done that version many times, all times great, you need to cook longer until brown, but thats assuming your oven is accurate. Also, place the Pistachio nuts in a bag & pound on them, that brings added flavor, should be very course , not fine. Love it. Great asset to any dinner party everyone loves them & they always want a few for home.

German Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
I enjoyed making this cake, it was a fun project. I adjusted things based on some of the reviews. 1st I used wax paper to line the bottom of the pans. This really helped when removing them from the pans. The cake came out perfect, but I had to cook an extra 5 -10 minutes since I used three 8 1/2" pans. The frosting was a little tricky since, I keep waiting for it to thicken. I was used certain of the consistancy, never had made it before. I did used some cornstarch like suggested. When I put the coconut & pecans in, that seemed what bound it all together. I did make 1 1/2 times the recipe & that amount was perfect to frost the whole cake. I used coconut oil & chocolate for the drizzle. I brought is over to the superbowl party & it seemed to be a big hit.
