SMS - Sour Cherry and Almond Biscotti



I feel like I haven't blogged in forever! Between vacation, being busy at work, and being just plain lazy, I have neglected my blog. I've cooking some good stuff to! I've just got to take time to take pictures and then post more often...

Tracey at Made by Tray Tray selected Sour Cherry and Almond Biscotti for this week's SMS. For some reason I had it in my head that this recipe was for Chocolate, Sour Cherry and Almond Biscotti. Even after reading the recipe to ensure I had all of the ingredients on hand, I was asking myself 'Where is the chocolate?' as I started making the cookies. Wishful thinking, perhaps?

These biscotti were very good! I have never been a big fan of cherries but have recently discovered dried cherries and really like them. While the cherries add a tart flavor and chewiness to the cookies, the almond was really the star for me. I LOVE almonds and they are well represented here. I found the cookie very easy to put together. I sampled a bite after the first baking period and wish I had cooked them to a little less than the traditional biscotti texture. Still, they were very tasty and would be the perfect sweet snack to serve alongside your favorite hot beverage.

The recipe can be found on Tracey's blog, here!

  6. your photo is great! love it, so creative to pose them that way. only with this recipe did I discover the greatness that is dried cherries. I'm not a cherry person either but after using them in this way, I think I may be adding more dried cherries to my baked goods!

  8. Your biscotti look great...even without the chocolate. ;) Your photos is very cool. I also preferred these a little less crunchy. This recipe was definitely a winner!

  9. Great shot! Maybe next time you could melt some chocolate and drizzle it over them or dunk one end in a bit of chocolate. I bet they'd be delicious that way :)

  11. I think a drizzle of melted white chocolate would be perfect for these. Or dunk the bottoms in melted chocolate. Yum.

    What a great picture!

  12. I would cook them a little less next time as well. I'm more in the chewy-cookie camp. I love your first picture. What a great idea to stack them like that!
