3/4 cup boiling water
1 pkg. (0.3 oz.) JELL-O Peach Flavor Sugar Free Gelatin
1 cup cold prepared CRYSTAL LIGHT Peach Flavor Iced Tea
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
3/4 cup chopped drained canned peaches in extra-light syrup


ADD boiling water to gelatin mix; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Stir in tea and ginger.

PLACE peaches in 6 muffin cups sprayed lightly with cooking spray; cover with gelatin mixture.

To remove gelatin molds from muffin cups, dip knife in warm water, then run knife around edge of each gelatin cup to loosen. Use moistened fingers to gently pull gelatin cups from muffin pan.

Chocolate-Hazelnut Biscotti

This Chocolate-Hazelnut Biscotti is just the thing to curb that chocolate craving and the Hazelnuts gives it that little extra tasty crunch we all love. You can use other nuts if you like , such as pecans, walnuts or almonds.


* 1 1/2 cup(s) flour, whole-wheat pastry
* 1 cup(s) sugar substitute
* 1/2 cup(s) cocoa powder, unsweetened, preferably Dutch-process
* 1 1/2 tablespoon espresso, instant
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 2 egg(s)
* 2 egg white(s)
* 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 teaspoon almond extract
* 1/4 cup(s) nuts, hazelnuts, toasted and coarsely chopped


1. Preheat the oven to 300ºF. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or waxed paper.

2. Sift the flour, sugar substitute, cocoa, espresso powder, baking soda, and salt onto a piece of waxed paper or foil. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, egg whites, vanilla, and almond extract. Beat with an electric mixer set on medium speed. Reduce the speed to low and gradually add the flour mixture until a stiff dough forms, adding the hazelnuts when the dough is about half mixed.

3. On a floured surface, divide the dough in half. Form each half into a 12"-long log, pressing down the top slightly to a 3" width. Transfer the logs to the prepared baking sheet, placing them an inch or two apart. Bake until almost firm to the touch, about 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes.

4. Using a spatula, carefully transfer the logs to a work surface. Using a serrated knife, cut logs on the diagonal into 1⁄2"- to 3⁄4"-thick slices. Arrange the slices, cut side down, on the baking sheet. Return to the oven and bake 30 minutes longer, turning once halfway through. Cool completely on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
