Chocolate-Dipped Pistachio-Almond Biscotti – A Guest Post for Kitchen Confidante

November 27, 2011

When you are invited to celebrate Friendsgiving by a blogger whose work is a constant inspiration, there is only one reply: a resounding yes.  After all, one of the greatest benefits of having started Lemons and Anchovies is the amount of friends I have made who share my love for food.  Liren of Kitchen Confidante was the first connection I made almost two years ago.  I dare you not to be drawn by her beautiful food photos and engaging writing style–I was, and I am now very  happy to call her a friend.

Liren has been celebrating Friendsgiving all week by inviting some friends to share their favorite Thanksgiving memories.  I share some of mine on her blog with these Chocolate-Dipped Pistachio-Almond Biscotti inspired by Francois Payard.  Please stop by Kitchen Confidante for a look at my Friendsgiving guest post and the recipe for these very easy-to-make biscotti.

    Hi Jean! I just came back from Liren’s site. I loved your guest post. I always wish that I could write a story like you and share with people. It’s really a great pleasure to read. Something I need to work on (a lot). And the biscotti recipe is a keeper. The the chocolate dip… that makes this dessert better than perfect.:-)

      Nami, in my case you are far too generous with your compliments but I thank you so much! You sell yourself short, Missy–there’s a reason you have so many fans on your site–me included! Always so nice to visit your blog. 🙂

    I came over to say your pictures are gorgeous. They did what they need to, made me want the food. I’ll dream about these cookies and I”m not a sweets eater very much. These have that just right quality and must be served with coffee. But I would bite off the chocolate and then do a dip.

      Angela, thank you so much for saying this. I was a bit disappointed with the images but you made me feel better about them. 🙂

  17. November 28, 2011 8:29 PM

    Perfect biscotti! Love that you also used pistachios and of course, that chocolate!

  18. November 28, 2011 10:26 PM

    Yay!! Congrats on the Top 9!!! Gorgeous photos as always. The two of you provide endless inspiration to me. Someday I hope to be able to make a scene like you do. Love the pistachios here. Nicely done!
