I hadn't planned on TWD this week. I wasn't feeling up to Biscotti. But when I scrolled through the blogroll, I quickly changed my mind. Seems it's a well liked recipe. I ran to the store to grab some slivered almonds and corn meal. For this recipe, I decided I'd swap out 1/4 cup of flour and use 1/4 cup of almond meal I've had for a while now (in hopes to get me to make macarons one day). I also used vanilla extract since Iam not an almond extract fan, but I love almonds!
I was going to use 2 baking sheets, because I saw that other's had joined together while baking. When I was shaping it, I thought it'd be OK since they were skinny logs so I used 1 tray. They flattened out and squished each other. *sigh
Anyways, these came out really really good, they just might join my Holiday cookie trays! I love the flavors, the subtle crunch from the corn meal and the softer centers. Way better than rock hard biscotti. I'm glad I made them, thanks for picking these Gretchen of Canela & Comino!
