      Great biscotti! I used anise seeds instead of fennel.

      My fiance had his doubts about the pistacio and fig combination, but I knew it would be delicious, and it was! Thank you!

      I love figs, I love pistachios. It must be the Sicilian in me. I have made biscotti with figs and walnuts which were divine. These biscotti were just as divine. I also used Sambuca. This recipe will definitely be added to my biscotti repertoire.
