Need some handmade holiday gift ideas?

The Spokesman-Review Food section has compiled a few recipes from its archives that might work. They are: biscotti, marshmallows, madeleines and amaretto. Find links in the list below.

 

  • Once-bitten, twice-baked, dry and highly dunk-able, biscotti are often difficult to put down, especially when paired with espresso.
  • Homemade marshmallows are fresher – and somehow sweeter, fluffier and more delicate – than the mass-produced variety. And once you’ve mastered melting and whipping the sugar – it’s not difficult, only time consuming – the candy offers a kind of blank slate for whatever creative flavor combinations you can dream up.
  • Madeleines are baby sponge cakes – buttery, light and gone in two or three bites. The golden, seashell-shaped, cookie-sized treats feature a crisp, delicate crust; plump, dome-shaped underbelly; and moist, tender interior.
  • This recipe promises the amaretto gets better with age.
