a festive cranberry/orange/pumpkin seed variation of my standard biscotti recipe.
I was functional at church (a good thing, because I had to introduce the quartet that was presenting our service that day), but pretty hoarse by the time we got to our Saturday evening event.
Sunday morning I spent a few hours doing these:
I jokingly call these chocolate-dipped fresh cranberries my annual "price of admission" to our dressage club's Christmas party, because I'm not sure the other members would let me attend without them; ha. Anyway, by the end of that party last night, I could barely whisper, and haven't regained my voice yet. It is impossible to communicate via telephone so I just avoid it; thank goodness for texting and email!
When I shared a photo of my first batch of holiday party biscotti on Instagram and Facebook, there were some readers eager to take some off my hands. I told my FB friends they gave me an idea for a giveaway that would be announced on my blog – so here it is. If you would like some homemade biscotti, leave a comment on this post saying so, specifying your preference of regular (almond), regular with chocolate-dipped tops, or cranberry/orange/pumpkin seed. They will be made fresh for you; note that they contain gluten and eggs, and dairy if you opt for the chocolate-dipped version. Make sure to leave your email addy (you can use "at" and "dot" so bots can't use it) so I can get your mailing address!
In order to get these out before Christmas, I will use a random number generator to choose a name on Thursday morning, and you will have until Thursday afternoon to email me your address. Short notice, I know, but that's the way this cookie crumbles. ;-)
That's it for now from . . .
