My grandfather LOVED this recipe for Biscotti. My grandmother made it for him every week for years and a few times when she wasn't able to I filled in and made it for him. He passed away earlier this year so this recipe always makes me think of him.
My son asked me if Biscotti really was a cookie and I said "this week it is". I'm not sure if it really would be considered a cookie but it has chocolate chips in it so I'm making it work for Cookie Time Tuesday. I think you will really enjoy this recipe. It is always a hit and makes a great gift. I love bagging it up and giving it with a bag of specialty coffee or in a coffee mug with a gift certificate included for a coffee shop. What a great neighbor gift for the holiday season coming up.
