Chocolate Biscotti


Biscotti are Italian cookies that are twice baked. I do not like the extreme hardness of a typical biscotti cookie. My biscotti are twice baked but I bake for a little bit less time. The cookies are still hard but not rock like.

You can find biscotti in coffee shops and bakeries. But it is cheaper to make them yourself and the process is fairly easy. Biscotti are cookies that travel well; making them perfect to bring to a pot luck or party. This cookie also freezes well. You can make them ahead of time and take out to thaw for last minute visitors.

Biscotti are the perfect cookie to have when you need dessert after dinner. They are just enough to satisfy that sweet tooth. Dunk them in tea or coffee or complement with your favorite dessert wine. Since there is no such thing as too much chocolate, try the chocolate biscotti recipe below and pair with the chocolate wine described in last week's article. This is heaven for chocolate lovers!
