As the holiday quickly approaches, the choice of which cookies to make is overwhelming. There are so many recipes to choose from and every family member has a different request! There are the nut- and fruit-filled cookies, sugar-crusted or a thick-frosted cutout, even boiled cookies!
We find ourselves going back to our roots and bake up a perfect batch crunchy biscotti. I don’t remember where this recipe came from, but I have been making these cookies for the holiday for many years. It is Danielle’s, Judy’s daughter, favorite recipe for biscotti. Biscotti means “baked twice.” The dough is formed into a log shape, baked once, and set out to cool, then cut into slices then baked again for a crunchy crispiness.
