Biscotti

Biscotti are one of the most delicious treats baked by Italian bakers. They are designed to be dipped in coffee or another beverage and retain their flavor and shape. In fact, most biscotti taste better once dipped. Biscotti traditionally come in almond, anise and vanilla flavors, however many recipes have been developed with the addition of rich chocolates and a variety of nuts such as hazelnut and pistachios.

Biscotti make the perfect gift for the holidays or as a housewarming gift. They store extremely well, in a sealed container at room temperature for up to one month and in the freezer for three to six months without losing flavor or consistency. They can be eaten for breakfast, afternoon snack or after a sumptuous meal. Biscotti are loved by people of all ages. Children love to dunk them in cocoa or milk, while adults can enjoy them with a cup of coffee or a cappuccino. If you are looking for the perfect gift to take when traveling or visiting friends and relatives, a box of biscotti will fit the bill.
