Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.

Cashews, cherries and chocolate makes a perfect biscotti to serve with coffee.
Heat oven to 350°F. Line large cookie sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
Combine butter and sugar in large bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add eggs and almond extract; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour, baking powder and salt. Beat until just mixed. (Dough will be sticky.) Stir in cashews, 1 cup mini chocolate chips and cherries.
Divide dough into thirds. Shape into 3 (12-inch) logs. Place logs, 3 inches apart, onto prepared cookie sheet. Flatten each log to 1 1/2-inches in width.
Bake 20 minutes or until lightly browned and set. Cool 15 minutes on cookie sheet.
Reduce oven temperature to 300°F. Cut logs into 3/4-inch diagonal slices with sharp serrated knife. Place slices cut-side down onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 10 minutes; turn slices. Continue baking for 14 to 16 minutes or until edges are golden brown and crisp. Cool completely.
Combine 1 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips and shortening in small shallow microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH (100% power), stirring every 15 seconds, until chips are melted (60 to 90 seconds).
Dip bottom of each biscotti in melted chocolate, scraping excess off against edge of bowl. Place biscotti slices upright on parchment or wax paper-lined tray; let stand until chocolate is set.

I have a bit of an obsession. Lately, I cannot get enough of s’mores. If you take a look at my Pinterest board, you’ll notice that half of my pins are s’more-related. S’more cupcakes, s’more puppy chow, s’more lattes...it just never ends. So, it’s no surprise that I developed a recipe for S’mores Bars.
