Some more Biscotti

I'm really into making biscotti right now, so consequently, you're going to hear about it (or rather, "read about it") So the other day my mom let me try 2 new recipes! Orange Biscotti, and banana nut biscotti. Well, I went to make the orange and realized that we had no orange extract or oranges or anything orangy. That's a problem when you're trying to make something orangy, isn't it? So I changed it into almond cranberry biscotti, then later after I'd gotten orange extract, glazed it with an orange glaze :) Mmm... who knew those flavors would work so amazingly together? Not me, apparently, but now it's one of my favorite combination's!!

Then I made the banana-nut, and simply topped it with some milk chocolate.

Today I tried peanut butter biscotti with mini chocolate chips and peanuts mixed in, topped with milk chocolate drizzle and peanut butter glaze. It's pretty good, but I think I scorched over-baked it just a wee bit as it is kind of dry, in fact it's almost like a desert! I HAVE been kind of fascinated with Egypt lately...
:P It tastes good though, and it will still make an excellent partner for hot chocolate or coffee later. Sorry, I don't have pictures of it yet...

Til' Later,

Both of these look fabulous! I think I would really like the almond cranberry with the orange glaze as well. I have had orange cranberry things in the past and liked them, but have never had the almond flavor included.
