MUCH time is needed for the SIX batches of aebelskivers it makes!You NEED an AEBELSKIVER PAN : You get them from any cooking store like Williams-Sonoma. ~ It is made of iron and has 7 "hole"-type cups in it. You make the mixture and after pouring a tsp of Canola Oil in each cup ,then you pour the mixture into each hole-type little cup. 2nd NOTE: YOU MAY WANT to get a FUNNEL TYPE PITCHER~ like for funnel cakes as it is HARD AND MESSY to do otherwise!

I ALWAYS ADD Shredded Parmesan Cheese{1/4 cup for ONE Cup of soup}as a TOPPING and add the cals separately! It REALLY is FUN to have a cheesy topping on the soup and the cals are so LOW ,it is easily "affordable" in calories!
ENJOY with soft Ciabatta bread for a GREAT ,WARM MEAL!

Almond Anise Seed Biscotti

Make sure you have a cookie baking sheet in addition to a biscotti* pan {*they are long rectangle pans specificly for biscotti ;Wilton makes them. If you do not have a biscotti pan ,you will have to shape the rectangle yourself and then your servings amount will depend on how you cut them on a cookie baking sheet.
These biscotti are the perfect accompaniment to morning tea or coffee~dunking allowed and preferred ,but not too long or they'll break in the liquid! They have a licorice taste {from the anise seed}. You can find the anise seed in the Baking setion of your grocery store where all the other extracts/spices are .It is anise seed .
