Dear Lynne,
The biscotti arrived today, thank you so much.  They smell divine!  I can't
believe how many different varieties you made.  I snuck a piece of the
Almond to try without any coffee to go with, I couldn't help myself.  My 4
year old was with me and I had to share a tiny piece with her.  The rest are
going into hiding.  Call it "my other stash".
Here's a photo of the entire package.http://www.flickr.com/photos/53751754/2196496710/There's also a photo of Melanie trying a piece, and another of my Black and
Decker Infusion overflowing after trying to preheat the water before putting
the top on, trying a new thing after reading about it on this list, but I
digress.
So, Lynne, thanks again!  I am so thrilled with this gift.  I'm trying to
plan my own untraditional tradition, stay tuned.

Oh, Melanie is such a cutie!! So cool knowing that something I baked is
being enjoyed by a little tyke across the country. What a sweet face!
I'm glad you are enjoying them - I don't know if I mentioned this in my
other posts - sometimes biscotti can end up too chewy when left in plastic
bags. Usually (if the air is dry), they'll get harder if left exposed to the
air for a day or so. Mine are a bit softer than the standard type (everyone
who has tried them told me they prefer them that way). Or putting them in a
low oven (250 - 300 degrees) for about 10 minutes might be fine - just be
careful of burning them (I did that with the very last peanut
butter/peanut/chocolate chip batch - or so I thought. I was so tired I
forgot I left a pan in the freezer [don't ask - no room in the fridge, and
the kitchen was getting too hot], so that flavor wasn't lost completely.
