As the change in weather marks the beginning of a new season, the first day of December marks the day my mum commences her Christmas baking rituals. With family and friends spread far and wide, she goes into preparation mode to ensure she is ready for when family and friends drop in to visit.
Our family Christmas bags are always brimming with home-made goodies, with these Parigini Biscotti (Almond and Cherry Biscuits) and Almond Biscotti
sitting as prized packs in the Christmas bags.
The first day of December marks the day my mum commences her Christmas baking rituals; our Christmas is never without these Parigini Biscotti (Almond and Cherry Biscuits).

: 20 minutes
½ Cup Milk
1 Cup Sugar
2 Cups Almonds
2 Cups Glazed Cherries
3 Cups Self Raising Flour
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Essence
1 Egg (for the Egg Wash)
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl to form a sticky but firm biscuit dough.
Line trays with baking paper and spread the biscuit dough across the trays to form 4 small loaves. Brush the loaves with egg and sprinkle sugar over the top of each loaf.
Bake the loaves for 15-20 minutes or until the loaves start to turn a light golden colour.
Slice the loaves thinly and place the biscuits back onto the trays and return to the oven to dry out for a couple of minutes.
When packaged, these Parigini Biscotti (Almond and Cherry Biscuits) make a great gift to family and friends.
