  Categories: Desserts, Italian, Cookies
       Yield: 4 servings
  
            Water
            Sugar
            Rosewater
            Ginger, ground
            Almond Syrup
            Maple Syrup
            Biscotti
            Whipping Cream
            Fruit, fresh
  
   Prepare a simple syrup by bringing 2 parts of water and 1 part sugar to a
   boil.
   Remove from heat and add flavoring.  Rosewater (to taste) for a Middle
   Eastern accent or ground ginger (and use the ginger biscuits) for a
   spicier dish or choose almond syrup or maple syrup or a good shot of
   brandy.
   Place as many biscotti as desired in a shallow bowl or on a plate.
   Spoon a little of the hot syrup over the biscotti.  You will use
   approximately 1 Tbsp per cookie.  Let soak for 5 to 10 minutes.
   Meanwhile, whip some cream.  You'll want about 1 Tbsp per cookie.  By
   the time the cream is whipped, the biscotti should be softened.
   Drain off any excess syrup and spoon the cream onto the soaked
   cookies. Serve immediately. (Good, too, the next day when it’s
   soggy). Fresh fruit such as strawberries or cherries are a wonderful
   foil against the dessert’s sweet richness.
