I have weened myself off my fair share of vices in the past five years, which, I suppose, is a good thing. Damn admirable, right? Sure! Thank you. But I still have some habits that will die hard or I will hold onto until Dec. 12, 2012. Chief among them is coffee. It’s a chicken-or-the-egg, damned-if-ya do ... catch 22 ... something or other situation: If I drink fewer cups I’ll sleep more ... I don’t sleep, so I gotta caffeinate to function. Whooo! What a fun treadmill!
Anyway, coffee’s wonderful. And coming up with complementary treats is even better. I leafed through some biscotti recipes but never got around to them ... until Wednesday night. I had the good fortune of getting to try my hand at Ginger and Almond varieties of biscotti while in Austin. And, better yet, I got to take some home with me. Thanks, Sash.
These puppies are pretty easy to make, so expect more variations in the future.
