I was really excited to try this month’s Food Network Canada’s Cooking Club Challenge recipe… Chef Michael Smith’s Chocolate Chip Biscotti. Seeing that I am in the minority that prefer a crispy chocolate cookie to one that tastes half baked, it’s right up my alley.
I cannot believe that I have never made biscotti before. Never mind the crunch factor, they are easier. I find baking large batches of cookies tedious and boring and usually save them for Christmas. No more. I am going to be biscotti-ing up a storm! I was originally going to add some chopped candied ginger to these, but remembered that I had bought some mini cinnamon chips the last time I shopped at the Bulk Barn, so I added some of those instead. These cookies, ahem, biscotti, are so dreamy, and probably the best cookie I’ve eaten this year… no lie. I still can’t wait to make another batch with that ginger though.
