First I will say, I think I had some passive aggressive issues going on when I made this recipe. You may notice that it’s the third biscotti recipe on this site, and that I hardly ever make any other type of cookie. In fact, I made this recipe “for my fiance,” after his plane was delayed and he had been traveling for a painfully long afternoon/evening. I thought, ‘oh, what a nice thing I could do. I could make him biscotti.’
Except Chad doesn’t really like biscotti, or at least nowhere near as much as I do. So Chad politely at a piece or two of biscotti, and guess who ate the rest of the batch?
*looks around guiltily*
Gee, I don’t know. We must have had a party or something I’ve forgotten about.
So if you happen to be a biscotti nut like me (er… no pun intended), feel free to bake a batch of these “for someone else.”
