Christmas gifts for teachers – a great way to show appreciation for their incredibly tough job of working with my boys. Wish I could give them all $200 to spend on themselves or for room supplies… But that is not in my budget. What is in my budget is time. Time spent baking gifts with love. My gifts are remembered, evidently. Our first biscotti blitz occurred in December of 2011. So August 2012 when I was registering the boys for school, one of the teachers asked if I would be making biscotti for Christmas again. Hadn’t really thought about it at that point, but I kept it in mind... Yeah -- Here were the cookie selections for last year:As November rolled around this past year, I decided I would change it up a bit and make like 3 different flavors of my caramel corn and a couple other candies. But my youngest said, you know Mom, the teachers are asking about their Christmas biscotti.
So I planned out my flavors. I made:
and Lemon Blueberry.My sophomore told me he was getting dirty looks from previous years’ teachers as he delivered his gifts……and the youngest told me a couple of his instructors were inquiring as to whether or not any more little Shinglers would follow him…
(I will be posting recipes for these 6 varieties of biscotti, sometime… )
