Gentle Friends, for the past couple of weeks I've been without an oven so there has been no baking at my house. The story starts two weeks ago when I got a wild hair to make some Biscotti. I found a recipe and whipped up the dough. I got ready for the first bake and found that my oven wasn't preheating... on closer inspection, I found that the element had broken. So.... I slapped the dough in a ziplock bag and into the freezer it went, at that point I had no idea what freezing the dough would do, but I really had no choice. We eventually got a new oven (instead of just replacing the element) in place of the old one this past Saturday. I thawed out the dough and baked it up Sunday and they turned out pretty good if I do say so myself.....
... I think the main reason I wanted to make some is I could make them crunchy without being so hard you could break a tooth. I found the recipe at Serious Eats - Serious Cookies: Pistachio - Cherry Biscotti. I swapped out the Pistachios for Pecans, but the rest of the recipe I left alone.
That's about it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by, do stop again!!
