Chocolate Chip Cookies

Our chocolate chip cookie recipe is pretty standard, although though it almost never gets to the baking phase.  Many of us have a weakness for cookie dough, so we make this recipe just for the raw dough. In Culinary, at Sno-Isle Tech, we make cookie dough with pasteurized eggs and sell the dough in portion cups (available at Cash and Carry).

Simple Vanilla Biscotti

Vanilla is one of my favorite ingredients, so I was very excited to find a simple, tasty vanilla biscotti recipe from Year-Round Giving . I changed the recipe procedure to the cookie method just to make things easier and added the sugar crystals on top really add a fun texture and make these cookies look special. Whenever I make this, it has a habit of disappearing quickly, so I usually double, especially if I’m planning on sending some in care packages.
