I've had a bag of Polenta staring at me from the pantry for a little while, so I decided to look up what interesting dishes I can cook with the ingredient.
The first dish I cooked was Polenta Biscotti. This was my first attempt at making Biscotti of any description and I was incredibly happy with the results! They last really well - still crunchy and fresh days later and were a HUGE hit with the boys.
To make the Polenta Biscotti, first you mix the dry ingredients together. I love the yellow specks of Polenta mixed in with the flour.
I followed this Polenta Biscotti Recipe - only altering the recipe by reducing the sugar to 1/3 of a cup and increasing the eggs to 4.
Making Polenta Biscotti has inspired me to both experiment further with different Biscotti flavors and Polenta.
Do you have any Biscotti or Polenta secrets you'd like to share?
* Edited to add that I shared this recipe back in May 2012 and although my family now follow a more whole foods way of eating, it's a recipe I loved so much that I wanted to re-visit and experiment with so I thought I'd re-publish it for you to enjoy!
