Continuing on with my Cookie stories, I spent a lot of time in the grocery store last year deciding whether to make Orange or Almond Biscotti for Christmas.

Another use for having the right tools to do the job. After using the dough hook it was time to roll out the dough into logs.
Next the logs were put into the oven for 35 minutes. Following the directions, the logs were then cooled before cutting into slices and putting back into the oven for an additional 15 minutes.
The results was that I misjudged the size of my logs and my Biscotti are the size of what they are named for biscuits. Next time I need to keep the dough a little wider and not so round. That's the lesson for today. Time and trial are the best cooks or bakers. Even though they taste wonderful, the next time they should turn out more like small cake slices instead of round.

Almond pistachio is another taste that I like since I'm partial to any baking done with pistachios. My personal favorite is a chocolate biscotti with nuts. Today is my birthday and chocolate with nuts would be a great selection for toasting my special day.
That's my baking story for today. Happy baking.
