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.
