Recipe Name: BISCOTTI
Category: ITALIAN
Serves: 12

3 cups Flour
1 1/2 teaspo Baking powder
1 1/2 teaspo Orange zest
3 ounce Butter
3/4 cup Sugar
3 Eggs
3/4 cup Walnuts chopped
1/2 teaspo Anise extract

The secret to this popular Italian cookie is the double baking process.

Makes 3 dozen


Pre-heat oven to 350. Lightly spray oil onto a large cookie sheet. Combine the flour, baking powder, and zest. Set aside. Cream the butter and sugar in a mixer. With the mixer running, add 1 egg at a time. Add the flour mixture and blend well. Add the anise extract and walnuts and blend well. Place the dough on a floured board and form 2 12" logs. Place on the cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Allow to cool 15 minutes. Reduce the oven to 300. Cut the logs into 1/2 slices, cutting diagonally. Place on cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes, turning once. Cool. Store in an airtight container.

There is NO such thing as a diet over the holidays. None. ::rummaging for her ginger snap recipe::

O'siyo Sekhmet,
~ You are my new best O'ginalli (friend)!! lol.gif
~~ Dear Shadows, you are going to diet with me after the Holidays correct? lol.gif I mean, you are posting some pretty fantastic recipes and I can only hold You responsible for any major weight gain!! lookaround.gif lol.gif
~Sekhmet, I would be most thankful if you find that ginger snap recipe!! I made one from an old recipe from an O'ginalli of mine and although they turned out tasty, I am not used to that particular recipe...I think the molasses in it was too much..so would love to try out your recipe! chef.gif

Gingersnaps

2c. flour
2tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 c. crisco
1 c. sugar
1 egg
1/4 c. molasses
1tsp. each of ginger, cinnamon and cloves
1/3 c. sugar (in a separate cup to roll the dough balls in)

Combine dry goods in a separate bowl, put to the side. Beat sugar and shortening together, then add egg, molasses and spices. Divide the dry ingredients in two parts and blend in slowly. Emphasis on *slowly*. Roll the dough into a big ball, cover and chill overnight.

Preheat oven to 350. Roll little balls about an inch and a half wide onto an ungreased (I like non-stick) cookie sheet. Roll the balls in the sugar set aside for this purpose. Bake 13-15 minutes. Remove from oven, let them cool a couple of minutes, then remove to a cooling rack. If you like your snaps crunchy, put them in an airtight container. If you like 'em chewy, put them in something like a cookie tin or jar. I do half and half. biggrin.gif

I'm gonna have to do another batch of these. They've been sacrificed to lunches and my little sawed off cookie monsters. LOL They're popular around here...I bring home a bag of store-bought ones and I get dirty looks anymore.

haha! Hallowe'en isn't here yet and today I saw just that, the front covers of recipie magazines splashed with pictures of Christmas cookies!

Sugar Plums

Yield: 48 pieces

4 ounces whole blanched almonds
4 ounces walnuts
1 cup cooked millet
Zest of orange, finely minced
6 ounces currants
4 ounces pitted dates
4 ounces golden raisins
4 ounces dried apricots
1/2 cup of bourbon
6 ounces coarsely chopped walnuts

1.Chop the almonds and walnuts together in a food processor until fine; transfer to a mixing bowl. Combine the chopped nuts with the millet and orange zest.

2.Lightly spray or wipe the food processor blades with vegetable oil. Add the currants, dates, raisins, and apricots; pulse until finely chopped. Add the bourbon and the nut-and-millet-mixture. Process until the mixture comes together in a ball.

3.Shape the mixture into walnut-sized balls. Roll in the coarsely chopped walnuts. Store in an airtight container for 3 days at room temperature to allow the flavours to blend, then store for several months in the refrigerator.
