Cranberry Eggnog Biscotti is a fun and festive holiday treat – perfect for dipping in coffee or hot cocoa!
Can someone remind me to never, ever, ever, again go to the mall on a weekend in December? Seriously, what. a. nightmare. Why would anyone put themselves through it? But so many people do, and as a result there are people rushing everywhere (everwhere!), not a parking spot to be found, and lines.
Ohhh the lines. Yet, there I was on Saturday afternoon, at the mall. I tried my hardest to make the best of it and when someone was in my way, rudely cut me off, or took my parking spot (it happened.) I just smiled and wished them a ‘Merry Christmas’, in my head. I may or may not have added a bad name to the end of it. Bright side: I’m done with my Christmas shopping.
So after a busy day of shopping and fun Christmas party that night, I woke up on Sunday needing to unwind. Naturally, I headed into the kitchen to bake a treat for breakfast. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to make but when I eyed the carton of eggnog that I’ve been chugging the past few days, I had the idea for an eggnog baked good. Since I made eggnog muffins last year, I went with biscotti.
When you think of it, biscotti is really just a cookie that is acceptable to eat for breakfast. Which I am totally okay with. This biscotti is a fun and festive breakfast treat, spiced with eggnog and nutmeg, filled with dried cranberries, and drizzled with an eggnog glaze.
They were super tasty dipped in our piping hot coffee, but I’m thinking they would also go well with some hot chocolate or a latte. After a few of these, I forgot all about the shopping horror from the day before. Mission, accomplished.
