Karl’s Spiced Almond Biscotti

Adapted from Joy of Cooking

Every year we make several Christmas giveaways—food treats to bring joy to our friends. It really started to get serious almost 30 years ago when we moved a house with orange, lemon and grapefruit trees. Since then, we moved across the street to a house without fruit trees, but I found that I could still beg yard fruit from my neighbors.

Karl’s Triple Ginger Biscotti

Every Christmas we make cookies to give away and just about every year we think up a new variation of old favorites. I usually make almond biscotti. Jan suggest doing a ginger biscotti this year.

Miriam’s Christmas Whiskey Balls

This year I was unable to participate in the family holiday rum-ball spectacular.  I was in Italy, and also had the stomach flu.  That is indeed as unpleasant a combination as it sounds.

So now that I’m stateside and better, Christmas Eve I did some pickup cookie assembling. I popped on A Very Murray Christmas (which I love but my parents can’t stand) and made my own twist on Jan’s Christmas Rum Balls.  Only, I used bourbon and scotch whiskeys.  The base is the same, the boozy variations follow.

Every year we make several Christmas give-aways—food treats to bring joy to our friends. Recently, I became allergic to tree nuts. Our usual biscotti recipe has almonds in it, so this year I am making a second batch of nut-free, spiced biscotti.

Karl’s Almond Biscotti

Adapted from Joy of Cooking

Every year we make several Christmas give-aways—food treats to bring joy to our friends. It really started to get serious about 15 years ago when we moved a house with orange, lemon and grapefruit trees. I could not stand that the trees produced far more fruit than we could deal with, so I started making marmalade in bulk and giving it away at Christmas.
