lemon poppyseed ginger biscotti.

‘Tis the season for giving, right? I mean, I gave away my votes to the Wee One yesterday during Ginger 2012, and today I gave Dana over at Whisks & Words a guest post (my very first one, ever); she’s doing a 12 Days of Cookies series, and I am honored to be day nine. What’s more, it’s a recipe I have only because Movita Beaucoup gave me my first-ever copy of Canadian Living Magazine this year; a tradition I hope we continue, because it is filled to the brim with fantastic holiday baking ideas, including these little biscotti treats.

I’ve successfully completed all my cookie deadlines, and am now focusing on appetizers for various weekend parties I’m invited to. I’ll be sharing some of these with you in a few days, but in the meantime, you should relax. Kick back. Do a little pre-holiday chilling. Maybe even make my pre-holiday chill-worthy Lemon Poppyseed Ginger Biscotti. That’s what I made for Dana, and the post is right here.

To those of you who voted for me or my sweet Wee One’s ginger house yesterday, you’re wonderful; even though she didn’t win, we had the best time watching all day to see how well she was doing (for much of the day, she was in second place, and that’s pretty big considering she has a tiny house covered in cereal.) So I thank you; it made my day and hers.

      you too! although i’m late on my best wishes; I disconnected for a few days and now i just…can’t…get…back…online… *sigh*
      it feels like when you get up for work at x time everyday, and then you go on vacation for just long enough that your normal get-up time feels like you’re waking up at 4 am. it’s similar to that.

    These look fantastic, enough so I am going to make them for NYs brunch tomorrow. I LOVE biscotti. I LOVE lemon. I LOVE poppyseed. And I LOVE ginger the most. I have a great recipe for a three ginger gingerbread that I make frequently, so this will be right up my alley. Thanks, Shannon.

      aunt susan, since i am so late at replying to comments, hi! If you ended up making these for brunch on New Year’s day, i hope you liked them! It’s the best lemon glaze I think i’ve made, and i’ve been super hung up on ginger this year (I feel like i’ve put it in everything lately!), so a three-ginger gingerbread would be right up my own alley. 🙂 you are so welcome, and happy new year.
