BBB: Biscotti Picanti

The Bread Baking Babes celebrated their 4th anniversary this month. Wow -- those years really flew by!

I've enjoyed being a Buddy for several years now, and I'm always eagerly anticipating what the next fabulous bread will be.

This month, Lien, of Notitie Van Lien, chose Biscotti Picanti, from
Anissa Helou's Savory Baking from the Mediterranean, who very kindly gave the Babes permission to share it on their blogs.

These biscotti are of the savory variety, great for serving with wine or just for snacking. The nuttiness from the sesame seeds and the hint of anise (which I love) make a great flavor combination.

Here are the well-behaved slices, waiting for the oven to cool down a bit before heading in for their final bake.

The final results, waiting to be devoured.

To see what the Babes did, and to get the recipe, head over to Lien's blog, where you will find all the necessary information. It's definitely worth a long visit.

It's always a joy to have you baking with us. They really are addictive aren't they... I think I'll bake them again soon. They look very inviting in that glass jar! Thanks for baking with us Judy!

There were really grand weren't they! I always love the crispy stuff and these are just perfect.
Really love that you bake with us and that you look forward to it. We look forward to you baking with us and another great year!

Lovely! I really like the jar that you keep the rusks in before they were devoured.

Thank you for baking with us, Judy!
