Almost any cookie can be paired with coffee, but there is something about biscotti that is just a little bit better than most. It could be because the crisp, twice-baked cookies hold up to dipping, or that their long, thin shapes are ideal for nibbling on while you savor your drink. I’ve made them in a wide variety of different flavors and enjoy each and every one of them. Over on the Craftsy blog (it’s free!!), I’m sharing a great recipe for Cherry Almond Biscotti in a post that will walk you through the process of making biscotti at home, step by step. The post is packed with photos that show how to shape and slice the cookies, which should come in handy if you haven’t tried making biscotti before. That said, they’re much easier to make than you might think, so don’t be intimidated to give them a go.
In the post, I also offer some suggestions for different variations that you could put on my recipe to make it your own and customize it with your favorite mix-ins. The base recipe really is a good starting point for a wide variety of flavors. And if you’re in need of even more inspiration, give these recipes a try!
