I was thinking about something interesting to make for Easter and my mind said “is there such a thing as Carrot Cake Biscotti”? So I figured, why not give that a try!

I started making biscotti a couple of years ago and I have to say that I love it (and my 15-year-old son is crazy for it)! In my opinion, making biscotti is so easy, easier than cooking endless trays of traditional cookies.  You make the dough, form 2 loaves, pop them into the oven, pull them out, slice them and bake them some more and then you have tons of beautiful biscotti…In this case Carrot Cake Biscotti.

I took the flavors that are in a carrot cake (like brown sugar, raisins, carrots, and pecans) and plopped them in my biscotti base. They came out perfectly! I made one batch with nuts and one without. I tinkered with a cream cheese/white chocolate drizzle and yucko!! So I tossed that. What I ended up with was some drizzled with melted white chocolate and some drizzled with a traditional glaze. I enjoyed them unadorned straight from the oven…I ate all  4 end pieces lol!
