This recipe is very easy to make because I did a recipe with my teacher nicole. It was called. I forgot the name of the recipe. But it was very delicious biscotti.

So Yummy!

These are excellent biscotti. They were a hit at my brunch! My friend insisted that she have the recipe to serve at her garden party with white wine. I enjoy them with tea in the evening, while just relaxing!! Thanks Nestle!

I had never made biscotti before, and this recipe could not have turned out better. It is very easy to make and perfect with a cup of coffee or tea. I will definitely make it again!
