Cantuccini

These little Italian biscotti are super easy to make, and relatively quick.  Cantuccini are a specific type of biscotti, usually dipped in a sweet Tuscan Italian wine called Vin Santo.  When I was in Italy I was served this after dinner, and it’s delightful.  Vin Santo brings out the flavor of the almonds, and dipping the Cantuccini softens it.

Mocha Brownie Cake

I decided to make a third of the recipe to fit in my 4½-inch spring form pan.  After all, there’s just two of us, so we don’t need a chocolate cake for 12 people.  It was just the perfect amount for the pan too.  It rose into a dome quite a bit, but that just left me with some extra cake to taste as I assembled.

Buttermilk Scones

We enjoyed these scones quite a bit.  I used orange zest and cranberries.  I think I mixed mine a bit too much.  They were ever so slightly tough, but still good.  I usually gather my scone dough, and then put it in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to hydrate a bit, just like when making a pie dough.  This helps the dough come together with less kneading.  I should have followed my usual procedure.  Ah, well.

Onion Bialys

Overall I was pretty pleased with this recipe.  It was simple and straightforward to follow.  I did mince and sauté all the onions at one time, dividing them up later.  I also used olive oil to sauté the onions, as opposed to vegetable shortening.
