Blueberry and White Chocolate Biscotti

I have mentioned numerous times that I am part of a cooking forum. It was decided a few weeks ago that we would start doing ingredient challenges every two weeks. An ingredient is decided on and then you cook with it. Easy peasy lemon squeezy (as my first graders would say!) The first ingredient that was selected was blueberries. I decided to make a blueberry biscotti. I looked through many recipes but for some reason the one that really caught my eye was actually a very semi-homemade recipe. It used a boxed muffin mix as the base and then added on from there. As fate would have it as soon as I decided to make these my sister told me she had just gone blueberry picking and had some fresh blueberries for me! I was thrilled to use her blueberries and not have to buy some.

Overall these were easy to make and delicious. Honestly these were the most amazing smelling things I have ever baked. From the second I started making them John and I were both drooling. I am going to invest in a blueberry candle to attempt to recreate that delicious smell! An easy recipe that is definitely worth a try.
