Simple & Sweet Cookie Butter Biscotti Recipe – Crunchy for dipping while sweet enough to enjoy on its own!
This summer has just been flying by. I know it’s cliche to say so, but it’s true. We are halfway through July, and summer is definitely speeding up in terms of events and to-do list items that need to be done. Through Labor Day, we still have our two baby showers – both out of town, two out of town weddings, two family birthday parties, one friend birthday, a cabin weekend away for Bryan, one more out of town guest, maternity photos and more! That doesn’t even cover the growing to-do list.
Despite all the craziness, I have been finding moments to just enjoy summer. So often the craze of everything takes us out of the moment. I wrote a post not too long ago about actively taking steps to be more grateful. It’s not an easy process and sometimes I totally fail like when I had a mini freak out last night because nothing would work and pregnancy felt really, really hard – but it’s a process worth doing, especially if you don’t want to be ruled by all the negativity out there.
Alright – enough of an update. Let’s get to this sweet Cookie Butter Biscotti recipe!
I find that most biscotti is either too dull for my every day taste or overly sweet being dipped in chocolate. They both have their place and I enjoy them when I’m in the mood, but not on a typical day. This Cookie Butter Biscotti offers the perfect balance. Simple, crunchy cookie that is perfect for dipping into coffee and definitely into hot chocolate with just enough sweetness from the cookie butter. If you have never tried cookie butter, you need to! End of story!
The best part about these and our busy schedule? They are easy to toss in a baggie and take on a busy schedule. It really doesn’t have to be hard to be good to yourself on a busy schedule! The little things do matter.
