day 13 ~ brownie alpine biscotti...

I know, I's a busy time of year. You need to be in two places at once and have something freshly baked for numerous parties and you just don't feel like pulling out the "Art of French Cooking" for a lovely madeline recipe. 

I hear ya sister. 

So it's time for another "brownie from a box" recipe. I love these. You start with a basic brownie mix and add in this and that and before you know it, we have biscotti. It is crisp on the outside and chewy in the inside. Add in the white chocolate drizzle and it's a bedazzled brownie biscotti. 

If your looking for more baking inspiration head over to my Recipe Catalog. I have moved the holiday treats to the top of the page. 

Let's bake shall we!

In a large bowl, combine the brownie mix, ground almonds, flour and
baking powder. In a small bowl, whisk egg, egg whites and extract.

Add to brownie mixture; stir until combined.

Divide dough into thirds. On a greased baking sheet, shape each
portion into a 7-in. x 3-1/2-in. rectangle. Bake at 350° for 24
