Biscotti- Perfect Italian Biscuits

IMG_8502

As part of my Christmas jar project for my team (blog post here) I decided to make biscotti biscuits.

I have always adored biscotti biscuits when I have had them in coffee shops, lovingly dunked into my latte, however I had no idea just how easy they are to make!

These elegant, grown-up biscuits are suprisingly easy to make, however when first researching recipes many refer to double baking and that this takes time. I thought I would give them a go anyway and in honesty the double baking is so easy to do- give it a go and let me know how you get on!

Bakers privilege- sample the first one!

The recipe I used in full was from the Betty Crocker website: Orange & Cranberry biscotti .

I am going to make these again as both the boyfriend and I really enjoyed them but I will tinker with the flavour combinations, maybe a nice hazlenut chocolate and raisin biscotti would be rather nice!
