Saltine Toffee Cookies
Made these on Saturday to bring to work on Wednesday. They didn't make it!! They were sooo good - my only complaint was that the toffee was more like a caramel. Although I think that may have been my fault - I started the 3 minute timer just as I started to see bubbles. I will DEFINITELY be making this again, only I will not start timing until the full butter/sugar mixture is at a FULL rolling boil.

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti
I was very impressed with this! I don't normally like biscotti because of that "licorice" taste, but these do not have that as they are made with almond and vanilla extracts. I followed other reviews and cooled my "loaves" under a dish towel for 15 minutes before cutting. They did not crack and the pistachios didn't cause any difficulty in slicing the knife through the cookies. I bought salted, shelled pistachios and used exactly the amounts of both the pistachios and cranberries that the recipe called for. I will definitely be making these again (my co-workers all said I absolutely have to!). I also cooked the cookies after slicing for around 15-18 mins (flipping once) and found them to have a perfect crunch on the outside with a not-too-hard center. Didn't need coffee to soften these up at all!

Caramelized Spicy Pumpkin Seeds
These were surprisingly wonderful! I didn't have any cumin on hand so I left it out. As per other reviews I did add some nutmeg and doubled the cayenne. I didn't find these to be too sweet at all. They were even better the next day!
