TWD Lenox Almond Biscotti

This week's TWD post was chosen by Gretchen of Canela and Comino (www.CanelayComino.blogspot.com). I had such a great experience with this recipe. I have never tried to bake biscotti before but have salivated over the many different variations I have seen on mulitple blogs. But whenever I decided to bake a batch of cookies, the kids' requests always win out over my desires, so this was a valuable opportunity to try biscotti. My dough was the perfect consistency...sticky to the fingers, and it was fairly simple to make the logs. The almond extract added the perfect touch and smelled wonderful while the cookies baked. Yum! I can never leave good enough alone, so I melted some semi-sweet chocolate and drizzled over the biscotti. I love the presentation it gave the cookies. Thank you Gretchen for choosing Lenox Almond Biscotti for this week, otherwise I would probably continue to postpone trying these and would have missed this pleasurable experience!

I just made biscotti over the weekend! Mine called for white chocolate drizzled over the top, but I didn't have any. But your chocolate really kicks it up a notch!

Love how you drizzled yours! I made mine to the letter and really liked them. I think I'll make them as gifts and dip them in almond bark :)
