I have always joked with my mother that I was born a Princess, but was switched at birth.
I have always liked very simple, but very expensive things.
Even as kid I always gravitated toward expensive items.
I take the girl to a local jewelry store quite often, as she has a love of jewelry like I do, and we generally always end up at the diamond case at some point in the shopping experience.
There is one there that just blows me away every time I see it.
The first time I saw it, I just knew it was the best diamond in the store.
Then I saw the price.
I have always thought that Biscotti as more of a ‘princess’ type food, but I have never had it. I dont’ know why. Princess’s eat Biscotti every day.
Today’s TWD is Lenox Almond Biscotti Orange Pecan Biscotti. Gretchen from Canela & Comino picked it for us, and I was glad because it is high time that I got myself in gear and finally tried this.
I love almonds, but can not stand almond extract, amaretto, or anything else that tastes like fake cherry’s, so I changed a few things in this recipe.
I substituted pecans for the almonds, and in place of almond extract I put vanilla and orange extract. I also added some orange zest to add some oomph.
I have no clue what I was afriaid of, because Biscotti is fabulous, and this Princes will be eating a lot more of it!
