My August Foodie Pen Pal emailed me telling me about her preference for sweets and coffee. (What is a Foodie Pen Pal, you ask? Stay tuned for tomorrow morning's post for more on that one... ;) )
The local coffee shop here in my town roasts their own coffee beans in house. So, I picked her up some fresh roasted and ground coffee from there. I always try to include at least one homemade goodie in each of my Foodie Pen Pal boxes. What goes better with a cup of coffee than some delicious biscotti to dip in it?? ;) I remembered that I had pinned a recipe for a chocolate biscotti from David Lebovitz- living the sweet life in Paris blog. Perfect! Except I had never made biscotti before, so this was my first venture into this culinary territory...
The biscotti turned out amazing! I may have cut some pieces just a little too thick because there were a few that turned out a little more cakey. But most of them were the right texture and consistency. I ,of course, opted for dipping them in chocolate. ;) How could I not?
I packaged up some to send to my Foodie Pen Pal, and kept a few for myself. These made for a fabulous and decadent breakfast a few times that week. I am looking forward to whipping up my next batch of homemade biscotti soon. :)
