Biscotti


In Italy, there's always biscotti. Dorie picked a winner by including local restaurant Lenox Room's almond and cornmeal biscotti in the Baking: From My Home to Yours book. This special treat is great to dip and sip with Vin Santo, the wine of the saints. The TWD's selection is made by Canela & Comino.


Cornmeal adds the crunch.


Two long logs. To keep from spreading, chill just a bit.


Twice baked and cut on a 45 degree angle.


Drizzle with caramel. Hide a few for yourself.


Lenox Room is now closed. Tony, the owner went nut-free and re-opened as a steakhouse. Biscotti are no longer on the menu. I'll always have Florence.

Caramel drizzle? I'd hide a few batches!

Lori said...

me, I'd hide a few so other people could have some. Because I'd eat the rest myself. :) Great idea, the caramel drizzle!

Hide some for yourself.

That is an understatement. Hide lots for yourself.
