Being pregnant means there are a whole new set of rules for what you can and cannot eat. Say goodbye to alcohol, sushi, deli meats, lots of cheeses and some types of fish. Then there's the list of things that should be eaten in moderation. That list is the most confusing to me. I mean, what's moderation? Once a month, once a week, once a day? One thing on that moderation list is my beloved coffee. You guys know how much I love my coffee, but I obviously want to be safe and do what's best for baby. Sooooo, I've cut down significantly on my coffee intake, and when I do drink it, I only have one small cup (and I little tear when it's done, wishing I could have a second cup -- boohoo).
These cookies are a great way to enjoy a hint of coffee flavor in cookie form. With only 2 teaspoons of espresso powder in the whole batter, they are safe to eat and eat and eat some more. I love that these biscotti are still slightly soft, especially right out of the oven. The intense chocolate flavor from a triple threat of cocoa, bittersweet and white chocolate, plus the added kick from the espresso, is the perfect way to satisfy my sweet and coffee cravings at the safe time!!!! Now excuse me while I go eat some cookies!! :)
