These Sun Dried Tomato Biscotti with the addition of a cream cheese topping are just the perfect appetizers to serve to a group!
I’m going to share a secret with you, since discovering my love of biscotti I’ve eaten Soooo many (I have to test them) that I have gained weight equal to the weight of the biscotti eaten. No joke! I love them! But until recently I’d never tried anything other than sweet recipes. Savory biscotti? Bizarre! But once I tried them and discovered how awesome they can be, I was hooked. Not exactly as delicious with tea or coffee, they are great with hearty soups or as appetizers!.
If the thought of dried food does not bring to mind a gourmet treat, and you have never tried dried tomatoes, you’re in for a surprise. A relatively small amount of sun-dried tomatoes gives a gourmet touch and a burst of flavor to a variety of recipes. Easy to store, and use at home, this is an item you may wish to consider a staple in your pantry
This recipe calls for “Herbs de Provence”, if you can’t find it or don’t want to spend the money you can easily make your own, see recipe following.
Herbs de Provence adds elegance to pretty much any dish. It’s a very unique mixture and flavor—which in my personal opinion is underused. The problem is that buying it premixed is crazy expensive, so I usually just whip up my own. It tastes fantastic on grilled chicken, and although we don’t eat a ton of fish, it is yummy there too.
Mix all ingredients together thoroughly and store in an airtight container.
Of course now that you have made the Herbs de Provence blend what do you do with the extra?
Needn't worry it is very usefull!
Herbs de Provence blend is complementary to many Italian dishes. You can dd to foods before or during cooking or mix with oil prior to cooking to infuse the flavor into the cooked food. Especially good mixed with olive oil to coat chicken, turkey or lamb, as well as fish, tomatoes and potatoes before roasting. Use to season salads, pizza sauces, cheeses, stuffing, soups and stews. Sprinkle over your meats and kabobs before grilling. Add a pinch or two to the hot coals and surround yourself with the aromatic bouquet.
