TWD Lenox Almond Biscotti

This week's recipe was delayed as my oven decided to explode during the self cleaning cycle! Glass was replaced today and I decided.. or rather was spurred on by the fact that I had no almond extract to make two different flavors to the recipe a lemon poppyseed (where I added 2 tsp lemon extract and 1 T poppyseeds.

The second flavour was 'Christmas' themed.. with dried cranberries, 1 t orange extract, chocolate chips, and pistachios

In both flavors I put flaked almonds.

I dipped some of the lemon poppy seed ones in white chocolate.. they were great!

I found my dough mix very stiff, like proper cookie dough, and the cornmeal was hardly tastable.. maybe people who found it too grainy had very coarse grind??
I had mine with chai tea.. Yum!

So glad that your oven is fixed.

Exploding ovens, oh no! Glad it is fixed now.

I love your flavor ideas. It seems like every biscotti post I read gives me a new wonderful idea for a different flavor...
