Twice baked, these crunchy cookies are delicious with a steaming mug of cocoa or coffee to dip them in. Kept in an airtight container, they'll last for weeks so you'll be sure to have some on hand for those unexpected guests.

Thank you for reviewing this recipe.


I LOVED this recipe

This recipe is fairly simple and comes out FANTASTIC! My husband and children even commented on how great these cookies tasted! I will be making this recipe often.


Better Than Family Recipe

I'm a life long biscotti baker. I actually like this recipe better than the one handed down in my family. The flavor is truer than the one I've been using. This easy to follow recipe, makes attractive biscotti with a very pleasant (not overpowering) flavor. This is going in the family cookbook (with an appropriate thank you to Very Best Baking real life bakers).


Breakfast Treat!!

These are fantastic to have with your coffee, for breakfast! It makes mornings pleasant!
