. . . CookieTimeTuesday-Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Biscotti . . .

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.
