 Tea Party Bridal Shower ~ Biscotti Recipe

1-1/4 cup sugar
3 eggs

  1. I've never tried biscotti before. It sounds like it would taste pretty good. A tea party bridal shower sounds like a really fun and "girly" thing to do!

  2. It's kind of fun to get a group of lady's together for a tea party. I just saw that some young woman I know got her relatives together to have one. They wore hats and had tea. I was at a bridal shower that did the same thing.
