not that I have anything better to do...

but did you know...

that homemade Biscotti takes (on average) 50 minutes to bake...
then you take them out of the oven and let them cool (10-20 min)...
then you cut them up and REBAKE them for 10 minutes...
then you flip them over and REBAKE them again for 10 minutes???

ummm...I was totally craving dipping some biscotti in my coffee (my newest addiction - biscotti, not coffee) and realized that I ate the last one yesterday. and since i don't have a car to zip me over to the store to buy some more...i googled some biscotti recipes and discovered that biscotti takes a friggen LONG-ASS time to make.

so i stole one of Hudson's Oreo's to dunk instead.

and not surprisingly, it's almost as good.

Some people even make their own rainforest crisp crackers at home and it's a similar process. I know with or without kids it takes too much effort.

Biscotti's not that hard to make...it's all waiting time, but I see your point if you just can't wait. Dad's oatmeal cookies are great dunkers.

I'm still craving biscotti, so I may get my lazy ass off the computer and make some while Hudson is napping.

P.S. Biscotti is a super dry, super hard cookie (the long ones you see at coffee shops) that you dunk in coffee. Totally doesn't sound yummy, but it is!

You inspired me Joyce. I made cranberry/lemon and they were yummy with tea. Hope you finally curbed your craving.

Yum...rainforest crisp crackers are the BEST.

Never really got into biscotti..at least not with coffee. Maybe that's what turned me off when I tried it once. I thought, how the heck do you swallow this dry thing?!?
