Back to Baking: Biscotti


During the holidays I had this elaborate and grand idea that I was going to try out a whole bunch of new recipes. Since I spent the majority of my days looking for awesome dishes to share with you, the things to make list grew and grew and grew. As Christmas neared, things got crazy and hectic and I completely forgot about my list. Today I found it and am as eager as ever to experiment in the kitchen. This recipe for chocolate hazelnut biscotti is a dessert from my list that I plan on baking soon. The biscotti can stay for up to week in an airtight container and will be a lovely partner to a late afternoon cappuccino. For the recipe,
