Don't you love biscotti?! I do too! I wanted to bake some for you, but I wanted them to be pretty!
I used Martha Stewart's Almond-Ginger Biscotti recipe, and just made a few changes. I substituted dried strawberries for the crystallized ginger, didn't include lemon zest, and used my unbleached flour (King Arthur brand) instead of the all purpose flour. I got my dried strawberries from an online company called Nuts Online. I highly recommend them for their excellent products and customer service.
For the pretty part, I added 1/8 tsp pink color gel to the egg mixture before adding it to the flour mixture. Then after I had formed the dough into logs, I rolled them in sanding sugar. I also formed my dough into four smaller logs instead of the two recommended in the recipe. I wanted smaller bites of yumminess!
Here are the logs before baking.....
and here they are after baking.....
look at the lovely sparkles!!
Oh, I wish you could try one right now! They are really yummy!
And they're really good alongside a good cup of strawberry tea!
Today I am joining Trish at Sweetology for Tea Party Tuesday! Can't wait to see what she has cooked up!
I do hope you give this recipe a try! These pretty cookies would be a lovely gift for someone....I know they'd be tickled pink! Have a great day!
