My Sispiration!!!

Thank you sistas!



You inspired me to make this . . . .



My sister in laws Shareen, Julie and Carlynne are three great girls! Yesterday I received inspiration to make biscotti and as I was making it I realized that I could attribute one part of the biscotti to at least one of them. I know you are all shocked and amazed, how could that be you say? Well let me tell you.

1. Shareen - told me on the phone about a month ago that you could MAKE (at home!)biscotti. This past weekend her and Julie decided to make homemade biscotti.

2. Julie - Talking on the phone to Julie yesterday she told me that she was in the midst of making biscotti. It sounded like a great idea so she e-mailed me the recipe. I was looking at it and realized I did not have orange zest but really wanted to make biscotti, here is where Carlynnne comes in. (I know you are all waiting with baited breath here)

3.Carlynne - Carlynne was supposed to come visit us the other day after hiking the West Coast Trail but after a bus and ferry fiasco she could not make it. I had bought some cranberries and white chocolate to make scones but I decided to make some white chocolate cranberry biscotti.

So ta da, here is the final product. Mmmmmmmm, tasty!

isn't it so crazy how the dough's so sticky? we read only AFTER making them that "it's often better to roll the dough into logs on the greased baking sheet"...that would have made it a little simpler than the crazy, gooey mess! But instead I just added another half cup of flour...maybe not the best option, but they still tasted good. :)

And you look so yuppy sitting there, drinking your coffee, eating your biscotti. Ummmmm, minus the fact that your husband isn't wearing a shirt. :)

I made biscotti oh about a year ago. Fun and tasty, but it took so bloody long to make....the whole bake twice thing and all. Maybe someday I will attempt that again. Looks tasty though.
