Biscotti with pink & white anise seed sprinkles

Yesterday a new role was bestowed upon me…I am an aunt! My SIL gave birth to a beautiful little girl yesterday evening. I haven’t seen her yet but will be heading there in a few hours. Becoming a mom felt special but becoming an aunt feels nearly as special πŸ™‚ …and I haven’t even seen my niece in real life!

Funny thing was that a couple of days before she gave birth (and some days after her due date) I texted my SIL to tell her that I thought she was going to give birth on the 2nd of April and that it would be a girl πŸ™‚ It’s so nice that it’s a girl, because I only have boys (+ one on the way) and it’s only my brother and me. My SIL only have nephews (4 of them) so the first girl there too πŸ™‚

I still have 7 more weeks to go…and then I too will have me some of those sweet little feet πŸ™‚

When I heard my SIL was in labour I started making cookies. In the Netherlands something called ‘beschuit met muisje‘ is served when a baby is born. I made something based upon it: biscotti with ‘muisjes’ (anise seed sprinkles).

I used this recipe for the biscotti, made them smaller and thicker and left out the anise seeds. Just dipped them in melted white chocolate and pink & white ‘muisjes’.

I made something similar here.

    Ha Linda, nu heb ik hier van een zeker iemand een doos met roze muisjes gekregen…. en moet ik zelf voor onze eigen dochter gaan bakken over 8 weken? of zal ik dat maar tegen Elisa zeggen?

    Heb het broodrecept van laatst nogmaals gebruikt. ditmaal de helft witmeel en de helft wholeweat- die vorige dinnerrolls warn wel erg baksteen machtig. en ik heb er rozijnen aan toegevoegd. ze waren sneller op dus ik denk dat dat een hint van de huisgenoten hier was…marcel heeft weer gist uit de giant meegenomen, dus ik denk dat ik morgen maar weer aan e bak ga. Volgende keer zal ik t in t engels schrijven. Mijn rug begint nu echt door te zakken en ik slaap snachts niet meer lekker. altijd een paar uur wakker. kan me niet herinneren dat ik dat vorig keer ook zo vroeg tevoren had.. misschien een hint dat deze baby ook eerder komt?

    groet, Willemien
