Rosemary Biscotti - by Summer

 I purposely picked this recipe for this month because Saturday I hosted a baby shower for one of my close friends.  I thought that as some of the prizes for the games, I would bake this biscotti, and put them in mugs with some tea.  I was a little nervous, since I had never made biscotti before, but as it turns out, it's really quite easy. 

 The dough was pretty to pull together.  The recipe said that the dough would be sticky, but it was really sticky and super hard to use the whisk once I added the liquid.

Then you need to shape into 2 logs and bake.  Then you slice the logs into pieces - I didn't get quite 40 out of them, but that's ok.  Then you need to toast them on each side.  It's not really difficult, but a little time consuming towards the end.

I wasn't sure what to expect on the taste, but I really liked them.  They were sweeter than I expected and I really enjoyed the rosemary flavor.  Below is a picture of the gifts (I don't know how to flip the picture in Blogger).  Everyone thought they were great.  I am really looking forward to making the other biscotti recipe in this cookbook!


  1. I've never tried biscotti either...what a great idea for a gift!

  2. I would have never thought to bake rosemary into a biscotti but it looks and sounds delicious.
