A delicious “dunker,” our Test Kitchen’s biscotti is chock-full of dried cherries and chocolate chips. Wrapped in colored cellophane and curly ribbons, it makes a lovely homemade holiday or hostess gift.
Frosty, fruity and full of flavor, this pretty iced treat from Elizabeth Montgomery in Allston, Massachusetts, is sure to melt any resistance to dessert! “It’s a nice ice-cream substitute for lactose-intolerant friends and family,“ she notes. And with only 5 ingredients, it couldn’t be easier.
With a hint of apricots, these chocolate chip biscotti taste great alongside a cup of coffee or tea.Friends and family are always happy to receive a batch for Christmas.—Theresa Smith, Lee, New Hampshire
"When it was announced that dried cherries would be the featured ingredient in the baking competition that year, I experimented with adding them to my recipe. I love the combination of the cherries and the chocolate drizzle."
Strawberries, watermelon and three other items are all you need for this freezer treat that's virtually free of fat. A friend gave me the recipe, promising it was the ultimate in refreshing, summer desserts. I couldn't agree more. —Jill Swavely, Green Lane, Pennsylvania
