chopped blanched almonds
white sugar, divided
My mother is a biscotti lover, so for her birthday this year I found this recipe and made them. They were a hit! I made them again for Mother's Day. Now I keep getting questioned when I'm making them again. I don't think she's going back to store bought. ;-) The one thing I changed the second time I made them was instead of 2 tsp vanilla extract, I used 1 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp almond extract, and 1/2 tsp anise extract. Going to experiment with dried blueberries, and cranberries, and other nuts eventually.
used pistachios, because i had a bunch of them, and i added about 4 oz. of chopped dark chocolate. i love that the dried cherries are left whole - it gives them a wonderful texture.
