Mmmmmm - Biscotti. There really isn't anything better to eat with your coffee. Not a slice of coffee cake, not a boston cream donut, nothing.
Tara is going to have a number of patients in ICU over the next week so she asked me to make something that she could take in for the ICU staff. I made these biscotti last night and she'll take them in tomorrow. (If you work with Tara go bug the ICU folks for a cookie, but I'm not making any promises).
If you have any confidence in your culinary prowess, give these biscotti a go. Try not to eat them all yourself (even though they last for a couple of weeks).
If you don't like pecans or orange, remove those ingredients and replace it them with something else. You'll need about 4 tbsp of liquid, so don't forget that (I bet Baileys irish cream biscotti would turn out interesting). These are vegetarian, but not vegan; I don't know if you could substitute something in for the eggs, but I'm guessing the protein is important to the cookies.
