Double Chocolate Cherry Biscotti

When I signed up for the Food Blogger Love Cookie Swap I was so excited to get cookies in the mail I didn’t even think about what I was doing to the poor bloggers who had to send me cookies. Or myself, for that matter, who had to send cookies outside (yes that’s what we call the United States up here) Seriously WHY would I sign up to send cookies in the mail? Because COOKIES!

Turns out my worries were for naught because the flat rate USPS boxes are a GUARANTEED 3 day delivery and that was good enough for me. And my cookies. I chose to make Biscotti which are notoriously easy to ship and enjoy because they are already dried out and crispy. Plus they’re sturdy too! Which just so happens to be the perfect combo for shipping!

Yield: 3 dozen

First Kelly of Kelly Lynn’s Sweet n Eats sent me these AMAZING Chocolate Pudding M&M Cookies–said I share them with my kids, totally lied.

Then I got a box with these Lemon Coconut Biscotti Blonde Girl Cravings. I was impressed that a dry biscotti could be so fresh and zesty, they were totally different than any biscotti I’d tried before and I plan to make them for my friends this year.

And then Rayett of Everyday Foodies made our day with her box containing a TRIO of fab cookies, Chocolate Chip Orange, Caramel Apple (WHOA!) and Biscotti(sadly she wrote me a lovely note on gorgeous silver paper detailing the cookies and one of my boys absconded with it and I couldn’t find the actual flavor combo of the biscotti but they were tasty with my morning coffee)
