    Interesting twist, not sure if the biscoti gods would approve but for the other billion souls addicted to biscoti…. nice one 🙂

    These look delightful. I LOVE pine nuts.
    I also never have eggs in the house…or milk (though I’ve started buying little long-life cartons to keep in the cupboard for if people come over and want tea or coffee). I’m obviously far from vegan (as demonstrated by the 5 types of cheese, 4 kinds of ice cream, and 3 open packages of butter currently in my possession. oh, and the bacon. The baaaccooonnnn…), but these things just don’t seem to feature highly in my life, other than for baking purposes, which sadly I don’t do enough of :\

    I am not surprised in the least at the Eye of Sauron being inside a pine nut. Alas, I’ve never been fond of pine nuts! Of course they’re associated with the dark lord! But then again, this could be the recipe that transforms my low regard of them into fondness – just like I hated coriander for years then a restaurant opened up here selling San Francisco Mission-style food (which I adore) and everything had coriander in it and suddenly I started not just tolerating coriander but actively seeking it out to put in things! That said, it probably has to be Mission/Mexican/Tex-Mex style food for me to like it. I have a sneaking suspicion I still hate it in Asian recipes.

    Speaking of the Eye of Sauron, my friend is moving to London and had a going-away party and she had a blank book for everyone to sign and one of her new friends who she only met a couple of weeks ago drew the battle of the Hornburg/Helm’s Deep, since he had been watching The Two Towers when he had to tear himself away from it and go to this going-away party. Anyway, my friend showed it to me because she knew I’d appreciate it, so she was like “Oh my god he’s so cool, in a really nerdy, geeky way! You’ll love it!” and my immediate response was “He has labelled the Hornburg as a castle… it’s not a castle, it’s a fortress”. I don’t think that was the desired response. But I was a good girl and I bit my tongue about the fact that he had written the label “a shitload of orcs” when really it should have been “a shitload of Uruk-Hai”. So there’s some ultra-supergeekery for you.

    Oh god a does-not-equal symbol! Even I’m not good enough to do that! (I just go with =/= because I’m lazy and inaccurate.) I’m so proud… *wipes away tears and mucus*

    How come I never get to try these things? Oh, I know, you used wheat flour just so you wouldn’t have to share.

    I’ll come over. <3

    If you want empirical proof that biscotti are not cookies, they are two completely separate categories in my Google Reader. Plus, this is the first recipe I’ve ever tagged with the words “pine nuts.” So congratulations. 🙂

    OK that’s it! I’ll be over in a few hours 😛 I looove pine nuts-the expensive little blighters!

    A depression years tip from my mother: 1 tblspoon golden syrup = 1 egg. (But I don’t know whether that means you can make the substitute for 1 of 2 or 3 eggs or use it when a recipe calls for just the 1 egg. Maybe in your experimenting you might find out and advise me. For my own part I prefer less sweetness in my cooking so never have tried it even if I have been short of eggs. I am more inclined to add an extra egg (always free range) to my recipes, especially if they are smallish eggs) – definitely not a vegan! But think of all that protein.

    Stumpy-yet-hearty just sounds so lovable, like that nice guy in the movie that is a bit funny to look at but you know he’s always going to totally come through for everyone. Even if it takes him a little while because he’s a bit short.

    Also, that’s no elephant. That’s an anteater. Fact.

    Also^2, I was very excited to see the ≠!!! Use of science-y symbols >> non-use of science-y symbols.

    oh my – I need to make these ! I love that you added dround cardamom 🙂

    Mmm these looks great, lovely with a cup of chai I’m sure. Great to have another good vegan recipe up my sleeve – thanks for sharing!

    Homemade biscotti, hey? – I’m very impressed. Biscotti is one of those things I fear making at home. I think I’m afraid I’ll make it and it will be too hard to even bite into. This looks delicious!

    I sometimes feel part of me wants to be vegan – the part that shudders at raw egg – but then the cheeselover takes over – yet I feel like some vegan recipes are always useful because you never know where life might take you.

    But for some reason I like the idea of savoury biscotti because crunchy savoury biscuits seem right yet I don’t really fancy crunchy sweet biscuits or biscotti

  15. TeresaK @ teresatastes

    Not only do these look like such a delightful twist on an old fave (ESPECIALLY for us coffee lovers!), but I commend you also for your use of “thrice” …an oft underappreciated word for sure, no?

  16. Simply Life

    oh that looks amazing! great idea for biscotti!

    Is that the raw batter in the second pic? Mmm, I don’t think mine would make it to the oven 😉

    Are pine nuts a reasonable price in Australia? Or are they expensive (like the $16-20/lb. they are here) everywhere?

    I’m the opposite – I ALWAYS have eggs in the fridge. I actually feel a bit stressed if I have less than a dozen eggs sitting there!
