Tuesdays with Dorie: Lenox Almond Biscotti

Gretchen of Canela & Comino chose the Lenox Almond Biscotti for this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie.  I had never made biscotti before, so I was excited about trying it.  I decided to add some fall-like spices to my version.  I added a teaspoon each cinnamon and ginger.  I almost added some pumpkin pie spice, but decided against it.  I was surprised at how wet the dough was when I first shaped it.  When I baked it for the second time, it took much longer than what Dorie called for to get the biscotti to the right texture.  I think I baked it for around double the recommended baking time.  I’m not really sure what happened there, but it all came out okay in the end.

I liked this biscotti.  It had a nice flavor and was a great fall cookie.  My mother-in-law is a big fan of biscotti and I gave these to her since there’s no way I would eat them all myself.  She said that they were great with tea in the evenings.  Biscotti would be a great gift for Christmas.  I’m planning to make several batches this Christmas for people, and I’ll definitely be trying more of Dorie’s versions!  Thanks for a great pick Gretchen!  Check out our Tuesdays with Dorie blog for more biscotti!

**Sorry about the crappy pictures this week- I could not get a good picture no matter how hard I tried!
