Biscotti alla Beth

November 6, 2010

Yes, I have my own logo (Thank you Betsy, my favorite blogger!  Visit her blog to see her fabulous scrapbooking and paper art creations.)

For the past two months, I have been brainstorming recipes, buying ingredients, and slicing thin and crunchy biscotti, then packaging them and storing them in the freezer.  This weekend, my biscotti are actually ON SALE at a craft fair here in Stamford called Holiday Happenings.  It’s at 68 Winding Brook Lane 10am-4pm from now until Sunday the 7th.  I’ve spent a lot of time there in the past few days, and they have a fabulous selection of arts and crafts, including jewelry, desserts, quilts, handbags, everything made by local artspeople and crafters.  I’ve actually been going to this fair since I was a kid (it’s been going on for the past 30 years.)  I’m really grateful to hear that I’ve sold quite a few bags since the fair started.

At the fair

I made six varieties:

  1. Pumpkin Walnut Butterscotch Chip (recipe I developed myself)
  2. “Palm Beach” Pecan Shortbread
  3. Gingerful Spice
  4. Cranberry Pistachio Orange (recipe from Fine Cooking Holiday Baking issue 2010)
  5. Cranberry Hazelnut Spice
  6. Chocolate Almond (made with both milk and dark chocolate chips)

    These look so great! Gingerful spice sounds amazing, especially with pumpkin coffee.

    Agreed! Beth, the biscotti look amazing! Wish I could’ve been there to buy a bag or two.. or ten. =]

    Good idea Sara… when I was driving home from Homecoming a few weeks ago, I stopped at the Vermont Welcome Center for some free Green Mountain pumpkin coffee. It was the best I’ve ever had, and I’d never tried it before!

    Lany–I didn’t know you had a blog! I enjoyed reading your insights on Italy 🙂
