What better way to enjoy a nice cup of hot chocolate than with a crumbly, nutty biscotti. Although pistachio biscotti are not really a Christmas cookie, I always seem to make them before Christmas.
Marzipan is one of those ingredients that you either love or hate. At least I’ve never met anyone saying that they tolerated the taste of marzipan in sweets, but were not very fond of it. I love the taste of marzipan! I like to eat it all year around (out of the package I may add!), but somehow the more complex the marzipan figure or sweet is done, the better it tastes! At least this is what I tell myself ;)
Today’s recipe are chocolate biscotti. Instead of classic pistachio biscotti I wanted to give it a more Christmassy vibe and used arancini and almonds. These cookies are also softer in the center than the classic Cantuccini, as they are only baked once. I know that biscotti are supposed to be baked twice but I prefer mine soft with a deep chocolate flavor.

I’m obsessed with my food processor. I missed it so much while I was in London and I only had it for about two years.
I remember when I saw it standing all dusty in my boyfriend’s parents kitchen, on top of the cupboard. I was immediately intrigued about all the new cooking opportunities that this handy device has to offer. Needless to say, I saved it from an unfilled life and took it home with me :)
