Candy Fruit Almond Biscotti

candy-biscottiThis cookie is part of my biscotti frenzy. Once I actually created a biscotti that I liked I thought why not use the basic recipe and just add different flavorings, nuts and fruits.

I am one of the few people who seem to like fruitcake fruit. So why not make a biscotti with candy fruitcake fruit.

Lo and behold everyone liked them … funny how put something into cookie form and suddenly something everyone claims to hate is good? 😉
How does that work anyway?

Next time I think I will add some candied cherries and use pistachios for more green and red for the holidays.
