Tickled Pink Strawberry Almond Biscotti

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!

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!


  1. Oh my goodness - PINK LOVE!!!!!

  2. oh these are adorable, I so love biscotti, but still have yet to make it.

  3. how long to the biscotti last after they have been made?

    1. Thanks for your question Kathrine! These Biscotti will last one week and possible up to two weeks. I don't know for sure because they didn't last that long at our house!! Everyone loved this recipe! Thx, Jina
