Two weeks ago I was wondering if I would be able to pull off the lefse with no special gadgets and then we come to this week’s recipe and it is about as easy as you can get!…literally: measure, mix, and shape. We are making classic biscotti which are called cantuccini.
This variation uses almonds, cinnamon, and vanilla. It took all I had not to add a little bit of chocolate in there but I figured maybe I shouldn’t mess with it the first time around. I have to say I am glad I went with the traditional recipe! I, of course, have mine in the freezer for after Easter, but everyone else who has tried them has loved them!!…some even without dunking!! 😉 These were worth making because the house smelled SO good while they were baking!
My dough was a little sticky but I just added flour as I kneaded. I would have to say the hardest part of this recipe was cutting the biscotti and keeping them all looking pretty. Otherwise…super easy!! It’s a keeper!
