I was in a cinnamon mood last week. Now, I know around the holidays spiced cookies abound. I make plenty of them myself - pfeffernusse and lebkuchen for example. Both fragrant with ground cloves, cinnamon, and so on.
But I wasn’t interested in all those other spices.
Bill had asked me to make some biscotti for a colleague (long story), so I did that earlier in the week. Bill had requested almond biscotti with white chocolate chips, so I made that, it came out fine, etc.
Last night was the Pasta dinner fundraiser for my husband's students. You know, the one I baked some cookies for. According to all reports, the whole night was a huge success; lots of tickets sold, lots of raffle tickets sold, lots of pasta consumed, etc. The kids and I arrived a bit early, intending to help set up if needed, but all the parent volunteers had already taken care of that, so we just hung out...looked at the stuff on the raffle table...the kids played tag with one of my husband's students.
Sorry folks - no process photos for this recipe. The lighting wasn't good and our kitchen was in chaos and oh I just didn't do them this time around. Lately I have been the poster child for poor organization skills, and this blog is suffering because of it.
