Gingerbread Biscotti is a must have for your coffee or tea this holiday season!
I have to tell you the coolest story that happened during the making of this Gingerbread Biscotti! As you probably know I moved to a little cabin just outside downtown Salt Lake City last summer… I fondly refer to it as “Ruthie’s Cabin”. Anyways, it’s quite an amazing adventure up here in the mountains. We completely adore it and if you follow my social media you get to see some photo’s from around my neck of the woods.
Alright, back to the biscotti story- so just as I put our Gingerbread Biscotti in the oven for their final baking time and I get a text from my neighbor saying there are moose in her yard! What?! I just had to see them. SOoooo, I snuck over to her house and snapped the coolest pictures out her bathroom window.
The baby moose is on the right and the momma laying down to the left…
Then all the sudden the baby comes right under the bathroom window… it was the COOLEST thing ever 🙂
Sooooo, the moose adventure took a little longer than the 10 minutes this recipe calls for on the second baking but they still turned out completely delicious 🙂
