One of my favorite things about the holiday season is the food. We celebrate Christmas Eve with a big fancy dinner, which I have been in charge of making the past few years, and I always make multiple goodies to share with friends and family. This year my family is hosting the annual block party and I was put in charge of the baking. So, rather than provide the typical spread of sugar cookies and gingerbread, I decided to go rouge and gourmet things up a bit. Cookies on tonight's menu:
Cardamom and Pistachio Biscotti drizzled with Bittersweet Chocolate
And, for your cookie pleasure, you can find recipes below.
Disclaimer for the GFreers who follow me: Since I have yet to master a GFree chocolate chip cookie and I am the only GFreer attending the party, I made all of these gluten-filled. The Betty Crocker chocolate chip cookie mix is delicious, however, and would probably benefit from the addition of some bacon. The biscotti can be made successfully subbing the flour for a gfree blend with the addition of a tsp of xanthum gum.
