Homemade Biscotti

This year when I saw the call to bakers to help out in the project, “Desserts for the Deserving” I knew I immediately wanted to participate.  For the second year I Am Baker did a call for people to nominate someone they know that deserves a random act of baked good kindness.  All nominees are welcome- whether they’re going through a rough time, are always putting others first or just need a pick-me-up.  Then all 170+ nominees are matched up with someone who is willing to bake and mail them a treat.

Well, this year I got matched up with someone in the UK, so all dreams of cake pops or cookies dripping in chocolate immediately were shot down.  No way can I mail any kind of treat like that across the pond without it getting completely destroyed in transit.  So I decided to try making biscotti for the very first time.

I used this recipe, and I have to say: I think I did a pretty darn good job.  I sampled a piece before mailing it out and I gotta give myself a little props.  I made biscotti.  Bam.

The biscotti itself was fairly easy to make.  It was the whole sending it out and getting it through customs part that’s another story.

  2. Hi Joan,

    I was the grateful recipient! I was so excited to pick this up at the post office as I had no idea what it was going to be! I saw ‘cookies’ on the label and was like “what???” But they were fab and I love the way it was all packaged. I loved the cute card too and thought it was such a great treat – the whole parcel and the idea. Thanks to my lil sis too for nominating me!

    Thanks again,
    Mel x
