Some of the most important components of Easter Sunday are the delicious pastries. Having a table that is stacked high with home-baked and uniquely flavored pastries is definitely the secret to getting your Easter Sunday brunch or dinner off to a sure success. The trouble is that it can be hard to figure out what sorts of Easter party pastries will be the easiest to pull off. Not all of us are professional chefs; most of us need a little bit of assistance in order to get our holiday parties off to a good start.
A great way to make your Easter party pastries unique and delicious is by using Amoretti’s Premium Syrups. Having a stock cabinet full of different flavored syrups will allow you to create a wide variety of Easter party pastries that will be both unique and flavorful. For a great example of an Easter party pastry that makes use of Amoretti’s Anise Syrup, consider the following recipe for homemade and delicious pastries that will go well with either coffee or tea, or even a special Easter Sunday cocktail:
Amoretti’s Anise Syrup Biscotti:
- 2 cups white sugar
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 4 eggs
- 4 1/2 cups flour
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup brandy
- 1 1/2 teaspoons anise extract
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup almonds
- 2 tablespoons Amoretti’s Anise Syrup
First, preheat the oven to 350°. Line 2 cookie sheets with either baking parchment or aluminum foil. In a large mixing bowl, beat together sugar, butter, and add eggs one at a time. Combine brandy, Amoretti’s Anise Syrup, and vanilla in a small bowl. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a third bowl. Add dry ingredients and brandy mixture into the butter and sugar. Drop dough onto cookie sheets and form two logs, 2 x 13 inches. Bake 30 to 35 minutes until golden. Slice cooled logs into biscotti shapes. Place the slices back onto the cookie sheet and bake for another 20 minutes until biscotti is dry.
The best thing about this recipe is that you can replace the anise syrup with any flavor that you prefer. Take advantage of the versatility that Amoretti’s Premium Syrups offer when cooking, and your Easter table is sure to be full of delicious and unique party pastries.
