2015 is about to end soon. How time flies!! There is so much to do and so less time. I mean maybe I don’t optimize my time well because I am always struggling with the tasks I have at hand. Maybe I should make a To-do list everyday and stick to it as well 😀
Anyways, I noticed that we don’t have a single cookie recipe on the blog yet. To be honest, I am so scared with cookie making. I have ruined several cookie doughs :(. Spreading of the cookies is a constant problem that I face with every recipe. But I am reading and trying to learn this art of cookie baking. Because there is nothing better than baking your own cookies and enjoying the aroma from the oven that fills the house with cheer :).
After struggling with several cookie recipes, I decided to try a biscotti. Biscotti is an Italian biscuit, which is twice baked. It is dry and crunchy and best had dipped in milk, tea or coffee.
This Chocolate Walnut Biscotti is perfect as our first cookie recipe. It’s an easy and no-fail recipe with the same result everytime :). The dough of a biscotti is formed into a log and baked in an oven. It is then sliced and baked again for that perfect snappy cookie!!
It was loved by my family and freinds. We enjoyed it as it is also, but definitely the taste is several notches higher when dunked in a cup of hot coffee.
What really works for this Chocolate Walnut Biscotti is the deep chocolate flavour and the crunch of the nuts. Get your oven prepped for this addictive crisp cookie and bake it soon.
I sat with my hot coffee on the swing in our veranda and dunked the Chocolate walnut biscotti in it. The crisp cookie softened and filled my mouth with chocolate goodness. A feeling I cherish with utmost satisfaction!
