Biscotti is my all time favorite holiday food. Years ago my friends and I would gather for a special holiday gathering and each year one of my friends would make Hand Dipped Biscotti. She would wrap each piece like a gift and we would relish every single bite until we got more the next year.
I make Hand Dipped Biscotti each year still love it. Our kids love biscotti as well and often help me make it. They eat more than they make, but I love having them in the kitchen. It is a fun family activity.
Here’s what you will need to make Your own Hand Dipped Biscotti:
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. Baking powder
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp. Grated lemon zest
1/4 tsp. Salt
3/4 cup chopped almonds
2/3 cup dried cranberries
12 oz. chocolate chips
