Three Kings Biscotti
Soak a few strands of Saffron in a heated orange juice of about 2 Tablespoons for about 10 minutes as you mix the remaining ingredients.
2 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon fine salt
1/2 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
2 large eggs
1 cup dried apricots, finely chopped
1 cup shelled pistachios, chopped
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In the bowl of a stand mixer on low speed, using paddle attachment, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add butter and beat on medium until coarse crumbs form. With mixer on low, add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition, add Saffron strands and orange juice; mix in apricots, & pistachios. Continue to mix until dough forms a ball, about 1 minute.
2. On a parchment-lined baking sheet, shape dough into two 2-by-12-inch logs. Bake until dry and set, about 25 minutes. Let cool completely on sheet on a wire rack. Transfer to a cutting board. With a serrated knife, cut logs on the diagonal into 1/4-inch slices. Bake on parchment-lined sheets until golden, 15 to 20 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Let cool completely on sheets on racks. (Store in airtight containers, up to 1 week.)
I make these each year as a gift to my dear friend in MN, and keep half a batch for myself. When she visited me a year ago, she confessed to hiding them from her husband.

Thank you for sending my card back. I love strawberries too. They one of the reasons winter is my favorite season. Dipped in chocolate or with whipped cream is the best way to eat them indeed.
Received my NYUP Return to Me #1 postcard, thank you!
I got my girl from the Louvre postcard back! Thank you! Stay cool :)
Hey Mandi! Thank you for the beautiful postcard for the Postcard Roulette! The church reminds me of a the Lutheran church here in my city although the one here is much more bare compared to the Catholic one. I'm not religious but especially Catholic imagery is so beautiful I can't help myself! Happy swapping😊
