This year I have decided to surprise Santa with something a little different.
GINGER BISCOTTI AND GINGER BRANDY
Let's start with the "cookies". This recipe came together very easily. It's a basic biscotti, but is embellished with beautiful spices, in this case primarily ginger. Biscotti originated in the Tuscan city of Prato and are traditionally flavored with almond. They are twice baked so super crunchy, one of the things I love best about this classic Italian biscuit. I also like the fact that they are not too sweet. In Italy you might dunk your biscotti in a sweet glass of Vin Santo. This Christmas Santa may dunk his in a sweet glass of ginger brandy. I found the recipe on the King Arthur Flour site. If you are a fan of ginger, you will love these biscotti's!
