Alright, I'll admit it, I have a thing for biscotti and a special thing for coffee biscotti. These make very nice gifts at Holiday time packaged in or with a latte mug :D

Very good biscotti. I made as a dessert for an Italian meal of roasted chicken, Recipe #112681 and Recipe #133526. Also had Recipe #159146 as an appetizer.

We really enjoyed these---the orange zest really adds a special zing to these biscotti. My only change this time was to use walnuts which I think worked very well. Next time, I'm thinking a half-way dip in dark chocolate. Can't hurt, right? Thanks, Annacia.
