Have you ever tried biscotti? How many of you don’t know what biscotti is? That was me nine months ago. I tried it at our local farmer’s market this past summer and it was love at first dunk.
At the end of summer, the farmer’s market was over and so was the supply. I went straight to Pinterest and found some recipes. Tweaked it a bit and it was delicious!
Some stayed at the Patterson home, but I also was attending a birthday party for a close friend that evening and wanted to give her some. She loves coffee, and biscotti goes great with coffee.
I made two kinds, orange & cranberry / cherry & almond.
To my surprise . . . they turned out great for the first time – Gift worthy!
Purchased some of my friend’s favorite things, including coffee to go with the biscotti.
Bought a gorgeous looking purse as a gift bag and placed all the treasures inside.
The finished product!
P.S. She loved it!
What are some unique items that you have put gifts in? Let me know!
Click on the purses to start shopping! Love these purses! Olivia got me my first MK purse for Christmas! Couldn’t find it on Amazon though. 🙁

Do you have a go to recipe for great scones?
No, but we had some great scones over in Ireland. Maybe I’ll try some of those next!
No, I have some on my Pinterest Board, but haven’t tried them YET!
Looks amazing!! What are they similar too – a crispy cookie? I need to try some! ? You’ve always been so creative for presents. Remembering getting me a cute travel tote with lots of gifts inside for my bridal shower? It was SO CUTE compared to just a regular gift bag or wrapping paper. I still have it ?
Yes, they are a hard cookie. When you dunk them in coffee or hot chocolate they soften up. Love ya!
