Biscotti - twice baked biscuits originating in Italy. They can be stored for long period of time. This is simple basic recipe. You can add some nuts or dry fruit. These have slightly lemony flavor from lemon zest sometimes I add dry cranberries. We love these dry - crisp biscuits as they are perfect to dunk in your coffee. Ground anise gives them nice aroma and flavor I usually find it in European specialty stores.
