Peanut Butter Banana Biscotti

The best way to celebrate on New Years Eve is in your pajamas- and by that I don’t mean lounging on the couch watching Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Years Eve. I mean, in your pajama’s surrounded by family, friends, good food, and good drinks! That is exactly how I rang in 2012. Jimmy and I hosted a house party to which everyone wore their PJ’s and slippers. It was complete with champagne, drinking games, gunfire as the clock struck 12, and even a friendly late-night game of Pictionary. We all had a blast!! And, just because the dress code was downgraded doesn’t mean the food was…. On the menu was Sushi, Bacon Wrapped Shrimp, Filet Mignon Baguettes, Scallop Ceviche, AntipastoMini Quiches, Prosciutto Lollipops, and Brie with a Caramel Cranberry and Walnut Topping. Also, I baked up some party favors for my guests to take home (for their pups)…. Banana Peanut Butter Biscotti. Happy New Year!!

Yield: 24
1 very ripe banana, mashed
1/4 c. peanut butter
2 T. molasses
2 eggs
2 t. baking powder
2 1/2 c. flour
1/3 c. water
Using a stand mixer or electric mixers, combine mashed banana, peanut butter, molasses, and eggs. Mix in flour, baking powder, and water. On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, use your hand to form dough into one large loaf. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and, once cool enough to touch, use a serrated knife to cut loaf into about 24 slices. Return pieces to oven , cut side down, and bake an additional 5-10 minutes.

  3. These have very litte flavor even thought there is the aroma of banana and peanut butter while they are baking. . I think the addtion of water is a big mistake and is a contributing factor to the lack of flavor. The other wet ingredients should provide plenty of mositure.
