This month we want to inspire you with some spring flavors. Ok, let me be honest, here in San Diego, doesn’t look like spring, is gloomy and cold, but what I do when the weather is a little different is too simple, I bake cookies, and lucky for me this month the #CreativeCookieExchange theme is all about spring.
I love how the smell and flavors bring the best of the season and how incredible delicious everything tastes. It is just perfect in so many ways. My favorite flavors in spring are a lemon, and orange, so fresh and so bright, you can make anything with this two flavors and it will taste just perfect.
And you can’t believe what happened to me today I totally forgot that the cookies were baking and Oh No! a hold batch of cookies is burn, but luckily for me, I save the rest from disaster. The bad news is that I can’t send cookies to my friends.
It is ok, another day I will send more than enough. So here you go, a delicious and different cookie recipe for you collection.
Spring is here! And with it loads of great flavors for baking!

Biscotti sounds fancy and difficult, but don’t worry it is the most easy cookie to make, and you can use any flavor combination you desire to make it more interesting.
For me nothing beats the flavor of lemon and almond, and my biscotti recipe is not to sweet so for sure you can definitely dip your biscotti in the coffee or hot chocolate. The main idea here is eat more Biscotti!
