From Claire's Italian Feast by Claire Criscuolo (Plume; October, 1998) Makes About 50 Friselle are savory biscotti that are the perfect accompaniment to a glass of wine. They are ideal for a cocktail party, and in our family we munch on them during the afternoon for a snack. Friselle can be an elegant and luscious treat when served with strawberries drizzled lightly with a fine balsamic vinegar. The peppery flavor of the friselle complements the sweetness of the strawberries and makes a perfect foil for the sweet yet acidic flavor of the vinegar. Friselle will keep for weeks (if you can resist polishing them off in it couple of days) in a tightly covered tin. And they make a terrific gift when presented in an attractive jar or tin and accompanied by a good bottle of red wine.
