Ok - at least we attempted to make biscotti. It was the end of a long baking and cooking afternoon/evening. We wanted something sweet to add to our stash of goods. We had most of the ingredients for maple walnut biscotti except for baking powder. We figured we could use yeast/warm water in place of the baking powder which made it more bread-like instead of crunchy.
I ate my biscotti as snacks with blackberry jam. After a of couple days, I decided to use the few I had left as a crust for apple "pie". I used a little oil to grease the bottom of the baking dish and crumbled the biscotti. I then topped it with baked apples that I had in the freezer (sweetened with maple sugar). The topping is candied walnuts (melted maple sugar and chopped walnuts).
