      This recipe has the exact flavor and texture of the Pepper Biscuits I have been buying from local Italian bakeries for years. The only change I made was to add a tablespoon of lightly toasted fennel seeds (again as they are locally made). This recipe is a keeper and I will be making the biscuits often. They a sooooo good with a cup of coffee.

      Really did love these. My friend called them little doughnut biscotti's. Perfect amount of pepper. I like the rope shape too, more of a bread stick. Careful with the oil! Next time I might cut back on the oil a tbsp. Thanks for posting!

      Excellent pepper biscuit recipe! In my family it is traditional to bake them long, still in the rope shape, like a bread stick. This is how I made them. Cooking time was approx. the same...excellent recipe.
