It’s cooler now in Wisconsin and that leads us into prepping for the days where the kiddos come home from school chilled. I have the Keurig ready with cocoa K Cups for Miss Sarah and stocked with French Vanilla Cappucchino for us adults. Either way, we top it with whipped cream, a few sprinkles and some sort of treat.

This week – it’s biscotti!

Biscotti scares a few people — as it’s actually a twice baked cookie. It’s really not that hard to do and really is worth that extra little bit of effort. That delightful, crunchy cookie, makes for a perfect “dunking” item.
