Chocolate Chips Almond Biscotti are crunchy sweet treats that tastes lovely when dipped in a cup of Hot Coffee or Tea. ‘Baked Twice’ until completely dry – they are native to Italy.
I am not really sure if you actually noticed that I have been taking good long breaks between every post and also a bit mia from Social Media. Well, there is nothing to worry really !! But a move is going to happen very soon within UK and this is calling for a lot of preparation in the back end. After all the school runs, my blogging hours are actually devoted to cleaning and dumping all the unwanted stuff… It’s best to carry as little junk as possible when I am getting a chance to move and start afresh… Isn’t it ?? Sometimes its so hard to actually part away – but the question is How much do I actually need it ? and How much do I actually use it ?? Agree or Disagree !
After the India trip, I actually ran through the whole pantry , clearing any expired ready mixes, sauces or even chocolates . Organising all the pulses in the containers tidily, making my life a lot easier every day. No more living out of the packets !!! Phew !! But it was much needed. A month later – still things are going well in my pantry and I am so glad the actual summer cleaning happened there.
Sometime earlier this month, folks at Aldi buzzed me to participate in their Aldi’s Amazing Bakes campaign running around the Great British Bake Off season. I was presumptuous to bake something that I have never done before. No Chocolate Cake, No Cookies, No Brownies – So what else could I actually bake ? Biscotti it is !!!
All the ingredients for the recipe were shopped at Aldi and I really love the place for quality products that are available at a reasonable price.
Google is my best friend whenever I am stuck for recipes and a recipe from Paul Hollywood ( one of the judges of GBBO) came to my rescue. Since it was my maiden attempt, I tried following the recipe to T, making a very subtle change to suit our palette.
They are crunchy as it should be and tastes heaven when dunked in a cup of Coffee.
