My little eight month-old is suddenly a little fireball of energy and personality and I am loving it. He’s “talking”, eats meals alongside me at the table, plays well with his toys alone, and has started to scoot around. Not to mention he does all of this with a huge smile.
He is also napping better, finally. It is a dream come true for me, especially considering for the first few months of his life he would only nap in my arms. During his morning nap yesterday I was able to bake these biscotti cookies from start to finish. If possible, it made me enjoy them even more.
The cornmeal helps give the biscotti a more chewy texture and the orange zest, almond extract, and sliced almonds give it a really nice flavor. I’m sure they would be excellent with a cup of coffee, but I couldn’t wait to dig in. I may have devoured more than is advisable during John’s afternoon nap.
