Biscotti Cookie Recipe

The biscotti originated in Tuscany, Italy centuries ago during Roman times. The word “biscotti” is Italian for cookie or biscuit. It is made of two words “bis” and “cotto” meaning “twice” and “baked”. They were baked twice so that they would become crisp and could be stored for longer periods of time and remain fresh during voyages.  Today biscotti are commonly eaten with Vin Santo, cappuccinos, or lattes. These sweet, crisp, almond cookies can be dipped in chocolate as well, and are perfect for the holidays!
