Biscotti Tuesday, December 26, 2017, 09:14 PM
I taught Ann how to make my Dad's Biscotti. Our goal was to follow the recipe pretty closely, but we ended up straying from it.
First, we struggled to grate the lemon peel so to make up for it, we used the juice of a whole lemon. It gave it a stronger lemon flavor.
The bigger issue was that I was helping to assemble and accidentally added a Tbsp of salt instead of tsp. To help counter it, we tried to add a bit more sugar. (1 1/2 instead of 1 1/3 cups)
It was not a dense of a dough as usual. I think it is because we did not use weight for the measures so it may have been a bit low. Either way, not too much different.
They did spread a bit while baking and also burned a bit (this is my first time making them at sea-level and it was a dark colored pan). But not too bad, We used a good knife to cut so that also helped a lot!
I think it came out pretty good overall! And it was fun to make.
