Jenny's Plain Biscotti:
Jenny is a delightful spry 93 yr old lady. Dressed to the nines she came to my table and asked me “Do you have-a plain biscott?” In a heavy Italian accent.
“I have Almond CranRaisin.”
“No! Plain-no fruit, no nut!”
“No, but I can make them for you.”
“Good, you make!”
The next week, just as my booth was set up, she appeared (Italian Nona's are known for that)
“Jenny, here are your biscotti “.
She opened the bag,
took a bite...
Imagine you are in a Mediterranean country, sitting in a coffee shop outside by a fountain, the smell of the spices in the market slipping past your nose, the sound of people playing backgammon and sucking on a hooka while sipping a cup of espresso or a mint tea. A bite of this biscotti will take you there... exotic, sweet and tart with an unmistakable crunch.
The original Biscotti! One day, as I was recovering from back surgery I needed to cook or bake or do anything that didn't require long periods of time standing in my kitchen. I found a recipe, and made the Biscotti... the next day I did it again, with a tweek here and a scoop there. I only had Almonds and CranRaisins so together they went into the bowl. And...magic. A touch of sweet and tart from the cranraisins, a touch of mild crunch from the almonds. Dunk, munch, enjoy! A biscotti I always go back to, one that started me on this journey.
Chocolate Chip Hazelnut:
Imagine this… a steaming cup of coffee or an espresso, a lovely day with intesnely blue skies and puffball clouds that bring out your imagination, a cafe table and the intoxicating scent of…. Nutella and cinnamon, wafting in the breeze as you sit in front of an old bakery. Nonna’s grandbaby, brings your biscotti-a double baked crescent filled with chocolate chips and whole hazelnuts surrounded by a touch of sugar and cinnamon that offers a seductive crunch and explosion of flavor in every bite. My Cousin Elaine says they are addictive, I agree. Mangia Bene
Vanilla Sour Cherry:
Imagine, you are sitting by the Trevi Fountain, people are milling about, your espresso is on it's way... The beautiful blue sky and warm breeze while being surrounded by international chatter makes you think about moving to Italy. Your espresso arrives with a delectable biscotti. You dunk, and yes, you are in heaven. This biscotti, with its unique ingredients will transport you there with every bite. Don't blame me when you realize the bag is empty and the last of the crumbs are on your gelato..
No Sugar Added Pecan CranRaisin and No Sugar Added Walnut CranRaisin
I created these Biscotti when a couple of friends on sugar free lifestyles and diets asked if I could make a Biscotti without added sugar that had flavor and crunch. It took a bit of time and tastings, but these flavorful Biscotti has become immortal in my friends life. Try these on a cheese board as a cracker alternative. No added sugar, no sweeteners, no artificial flavors... no sweetness added. All the 'sweet' flavor is from the dried fruits and nuts and a touch of magic.
