Two of my favorite flavors of Hawaii are Kona coffee and macadamia nuts...they pair nicely in this simple biscotti recipe. —inpatskitchen
Test Kitchen Notes
This unique, and easy to make, spin on biscotti is a Hawaiian vacation and caffeine jolt all in one. The bold flavor of Kona coffee and toasted macadamia nuts, which are two quintessentially Hawaiian flavors, work well together and give these biscotti a slightly savory taste. If you are looking for the perfect treat to bake that will both brighten someone’s day and make you look like a varsity-level baker, this is your recipe! Biscotti's long shelf life make this easy to make ahead, and I believe the combination of coffee and macadamia nuts appeal to to most people. I will definitely be making these for the coffee-lovers in my family for the holidays! —Abbie C

I think I get my love for food and cooking from my mom, who was an amazing cook. She would start baking and freezing a month before Christmas in order to host our huge open house on Christmas afternoon. I watched and I learned...to this day I try not to procrastinate when it comes to entertaining.
My cooking style is pretty much all over the place, although I'm definitely partial to Greek and Italian cuisine. Oh yes, throw a little Cajun in there too!
