We started doing something new this year, featuring recipes from home bakers or small bakeries/food businesses using the Ankarsrum mixer. It has been a delicious project and we have loved trying out all the new (to us) recipes. Home baker Joy Zbinden was generous enough to share her mom’s recipe for Butternut Rolls, and they are amazing.
Continuing on with our month of holiday cookies. If you missed our subscriber’s bonus recipe for this month (Chocolate Mint Meringues), subscribe to the blog for free to access that recipe and receive a subscriber’s only bonus recipe every month. Biscotti is often overlooked when it comes to cookies. But, we think this crunchy cookie that pairs perfectly with coffee or tea should have a place in the holiday baking line-up. With a hint of licorice from the anise seed, a nutty flavor from almond meal and, (if desired) a drizzling of chocolate, this biscotti is ready to be noticed.
Wanting something different to serve at the upcoming holiday feasts? This savory galette has a cool and creamy filling of feta cheese, farmers cheese and lemon zest, is topped with spicy quick pickled beets, and finished with a sprinkling of herbaceous parsley. Serve warm or room temperature. And all the components can be made in advance, which is key when planning holiday meals.
