The daffodils are blooming in Georgia and it's amazing!!
Walking through these gorgeous field of daffodils has me feeling all the Spring feels. 💐 I'm ready to plant my garden, clean out my flower pots and maybe even start some Spring cleaning. 🧹 (Just kidding about that last part.) 😅
As if by magic, the Spring vibes also worked their way into my baking. I've found myself gravitating towards bright citrus flavors like lemons, limes and oranges. 🍋🍈🍊 Adding a bit of zest or a squeeze of fresh juice to a salad, a marinade or a dessert can really make any food taste like the essence of Spring. Fresh, bright, clean and wonderful.
Consider these Lemon, Cranberry, Pistachio Biscotti my way of expressing all my Spring feels in cookie form. They're crisp and delicious, sweet and tart and I feel like they're a pretty good representation of my favorite season. I think you're going to love them just as much as I do.

These biscotti are a blast of citrusy sunshine. They're crunchy and sweet with a hint of tartness. Enjoy them on their own or as a dunking cookie with tea, coffee or milk.
