Today was a warm and beautiful day (what a strange winter we’ve been having over here). Too bad I was mostly unaware of it because I work in a basement, but at least I had a nice walk home. And now that the sun is about to set, I think I’ll plop on the couch next to an open window and watch Downton Abbey (oh, please tell me you love it, too!) while drinking tea and eating crunchy biscuits. I’m quite certain that Mrs. Patmore didn’t make Chocolate Biscotti for the Crawleys, but I bet these are tastier than the whatever dry cookies went into the biscuit jar in those days. These are full of flavor. I contrasted the dark cocoa and espresso base with chunks of white chocolate and macadamia nuts. Mmmm…they sliced and baked nicely and are good keepers, too.
I love this biscotti recipe. I have made it several times since it was chosen for TWD. and I am in love with Downton Abbey. Love, love it. I actually picked up The Tudors on netflix for during the week because Sunday to Sunday is too long to wait. I recommend it if you are into the period pieces, which it seems you are.
