Cranberry Biscotti

Cranberry Biscotti

I have a confession to make, I am actually unable to bake cookies. For some odd reason, my cookies never come out right. I remember making my first batch of oatmeal cookies from scratch. Not only did they taste funny, but they were possibly burnt; I was 15. The first time I made premade cookies (they kind you just put into the oven and bake it for however long and you’ll have perfect cookies), I under baked them then I burnt them. Recently I tried to make Pillsbury Easter cookies,  and I put the oven on broil instead of bake and, well, you can guess the results. So, to me, it is a miracle the biscotti turned out fine.

I actually decided to try and make biscotti because my piano teacher requested them. Thanks to this recipe, my piano teacher thinks that I would make a wonderful girlfriend. She is basing this purely on the fact that I make basically whatever dessert she wants to eat. It’s not really girlfriend material, I’m just REALLY bored
