Maple Glazed Biscotti

Do you find some words are more fun to say than others?  I do.  There are lots of food words that I like.  Let me share some of my favorites:  Sriracha, edamame, baklava, couscous, flambé, jalapeño, cognac, tomatillo and biscotti (just to name a few).   I love eating those foods too, especially biscotti.  You have to admit that is truly a fun word to say.  You have to really enunciate the two “t”‘s.  Then you will feel like a sexy Italian!  Or wait, maybe that’s just me.

I have recently discovered another fun food word to add to my list:  Zulka.  I received a bag of Zulka Pure Cane Sugar to test out in my baking.   I’ve never tried substituting my usual simple white sugar for anything else in my baking.  I think the natural color of the Zulka sugar instantly made me think of maple syrup and that my friends, is how these biscotti came to be!  I loved that I could simply substitute my usual 2/3 cup white sugar for 2/3 cup Zulka and neither taste nor texture were compromised!  Zulka sugar has all natural flavor and color with no GMO’s.

While biscotti is a simple recipe, it does take a bit of time, but it is so worth it!  The glaze was very simple to whisk together, but for the best flavor you have to use pure maple syrup!  These sweet, crunchy little cookies were perfect for my morning coffee (and my mid morning snack, my after dinner dessert, the kids’ lunches, my mid afternoon pick me up, after school snacks….)!

Now that I’ve tried  Zulka pure can sugar in my biscotti,  I can’t wait to use it in all my fall baking!  It’s pure, it’s real and it’s simple.
