Hello! My name is Anna and I am the creator of Crunchy Creamy Sweet, a blog with easy and delicious recipes for busy parents. My site is a collection of new and traditional recipes, all of them family-approved. My goal is to inspire families to cook and bake together, enjoy the meals and create memories. What better time than the holidays!
I couldn’t be more excited to guest post on Better Homes and Gardens’ Delish Dish blog. I still have and treasure my plaid BHG New Cookbook Bridal Edition — it taught me so much about cooking and baking right after my hubby and I got married. It may have loose pages now and scribbles here and there but it is a pearl in my cookbook collection. I have so many recipes from BHG that I love and choosing just one to feature today was not an easy task.
Since the holiday season is in full swing, our Christmas tree and fireplace mantel are both decorated, sparkly and gorgeous, and I have cookies on my mind. Biscotti just happens to be one of my favorite holiday cookies and I only make them at this time of year. They are perfect to dip in a tall mug of an afternoon latte or a steaming mug of hot chocolate. They are also one of my favorite cookies to gift to family and friends.
Since I already love BHG’s Gone Bananas Biscotti, I decided to jazz it up holiday style! I swapped the nuts for dried cranberries and dipped the baked cookies in white chocolate. This flavor combo is one of my favorites when it comes to baked treats. Simply perfect!
I love this biscotti for so many reasons but most of all because my kiddos can help me make them — my oldest daughter loves to help with shaping the logs of dough. After the cookies are baked and cooled, my youngest daughter and my son dip them in chocolate. They enjoy them with hot cocoa while watching their favorite holiday movies and my hubby and I have plenty for our morning coffee for days.
I hope I inspired you to whip up a batch of these beauties and enjoy with your family and friends!
