This week’s biscotti/cookie box is Della Nonna, Croccantini, and Rum Raisin Biscotti.
Croccantini means little chocolate cookie and it’s that and more. Walnuts give croccantini a crunch while the chocolate meringue part gives it a soft, melt-in-your-mouth texture.
Our biscotti this week lives up to its name (bis-cotti: twice cooked). Its texture is very crisp and it is loaded with raisins that are soaked in rum. Cinnamon is an aromatic flavor partner to the raisins.
The sesame coated Della Nonna were a favorite of my dad’s. He was a big dunker and these are easy to submerge in a hot cup of coffee!
This week there’s a mini cake instead of a tart. A moist and flavorful cake I wait all year to make with fresh cherries. Our orange and cherry cake with sliced almonds is just sweet enough, combining the sweetness of fresh Northwest cherries with a citrus tang and light crunch of sliced almonds. If you’re a cherry fan you’ll want to get in on this one. Larger cakes are available on request.
Remember, ordering is 24 hours in advance, with no same-day orders. Send me a message if you have a special request, a suggestion, or a question. I’m always happy to hear from my customers!
