Add suet and sugar, and I've got mincemeat. Add figs, eggs, breadcrumbs and spices and I'm making traditional Christmas boiled puddings.
Which is why I love these biscotti for the holidays. They make wonderful gifts just like the mincemeat pies wrapped up in gorgeous festive packaging.
This right here is my basic biscotti recipe all spruced up! Why mess with a good thing? And my basic biscotti recipe from this post here, is a perfect starting point.
Which brings me to why I think it's so Christmassy - dried fruits like currants and golden raisins, pistachios, sliced almonds, chopped up orange and lemon peel and home blended spice mix and you've on your way to a perfect batch of gift worthy Biscotti.
Give it a go and see for yourselves!
