Handmade Biscotti

Handmade biscotti is, without a doubt, a labor of love.  Each individual batch of dough is rolled out by hand into a log shape, baked, cooled, sliced on the bias and baked again.  Thus the word "biscotti", meaning twice baked.  

All of my flavors that have chocolate, citrus or dried fruit are all zested, grated  and chopped by hand.  As you can imagine this is a very time consuming process.  However, I do believe that the extra time taken with this step comes through in the flavor and overall texture of the biscotti, at least I hope so!  

I make my own lavender syrup for the lavender lemon hazelnut biscotti.  I do believe that the small touch of this infused syrup gives this biscotti the subtle lavender flavor which helps accentuate the fresh lemon as well as the richness of the hazelnuts.

~Tart Lemon Bars~ - Wow!  I had no idea these were going to become so popular!   A shortbread like crust, freshly squeezed lemon juice and dusted with powdered sugar.  I love lemon and enjoy adding a touch more lemon juice to off set the sweetness. These can be cut on the bias for a party and are very pretty on a platter, or just shoving the entire bar in your mouth in one bite (that's the way I like to eat them!)
 
Even though not all of my baked goods have nuts, everything is baked in a kitchen containing nuts.  If you or anyone you are ordering for has a severe allergy to nuts, sadly, I suggest you reconsider purchasing my baked goods.  An allergic reaction to nuts can be very serious, the kitchen I prepare and bake in is not a nut free environment.  
 
Thank you.
