Yeah, I had the same problem when I made the monstacholes for the  
Ball.  The hypocras was right there, as were instructions to dip, but  
no one
seemed to put two and two together...alas. >>>

What are bixcochos? Are these similar to biscotti?

biscotti-msg      (16K)  9/ 3/06    Period biscotti, a twice-baked  
travel bread.

What are monstacholes? Recipe/redactions please? I made hypocras for  
a Royal Luncheon once. Either of these might be a good thing to serve  
with Hypocras if I make it again.
