Christmas Cookie Challenge: Day 5, Black Pepper Parmesan Biscotti
Merely five days in, and I'm on sugar overload. Time for a savory recipe: Black Pepper and Parmesan Biscotti. Allevidenceto the contrary, I'm actually a savory gal--I'll take some salty olives and cheese over chocolate any day. Or, in this case, salty cheese, spicy pepper, and--well--still--lots of butter. Though over at the Copywriters' Kitchen they substituted olive oil for butter with no ill effects.
Biscotti are a treat so nice you bake them twice, ensuring crisp edges all around. The dough freezes beautifully--I tucked away three-quarters of this batch for a later date.
