With a cool gismo like this, how could I not help but want to better refine my domestic skills? So, with Christmas being right around the corner I decided that tonight I would break out my new gadget and try my hand at a little baking. My first stop was Food Network.com where I found a biscotti recipe that looked too good to pass up. With a few modifications I whipped up a pretty tasty little treat. See for yourself!
While the recipe calls only for anise extract, I incorporated a few goodies of my own. In addition to almond slices and semi-sweet chocolate chips I also used a splash of vanilla extract.
