Tuesdays with Dorie (Baking Chez Moi): Macaron Biscotti

Dorie Greenspan's macaron biscotti in a small blue bowl This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe from Baking Chez Moi  was one we chose specifically to pair with the previous offering this month – Parisian macarons. After I baked, I snuck a few mismatched shells off the tray with this recipe in mind.

It’s not something I’ve ever heard of before, to be honest – macaron shells, baked a second time after being dipped in butter – and it didn’t really sound much like biscotti but it is the best description really. These have a more intense almond flavour than regular macaron shells and are obviously crunchier (you can’t really tell they’ve been dipped and double baked in butter) and are a lovely addition to a morning espresso – they are perfectly dippable! An interesting use of mismatched or “not perfect” shells but to be honest I mostly just eat those as is LOL!

    These sound interesting- as you say, a goid way to use mismatched macaron shells.

    This week’s bake was amusing to me. I wandered through the kitchen and saw these on a tray, had a brief look, and reckoned “oh, an unfortunate over-cooked macaron batch”. 😉

    BUT NO! They then appeared as a treat later in the day, much to my chagrin.

    I agree…I would rather just eat the mismatched ones plain not double baked. I like the chewy texture better!

    I skipped these as I used everyone of my shells to make a sandwich. Glad you enjoyed them with coffee.
