susan d s biscotti


i love biscotti and was so excited when a friend shared this with me years ago, and i found out how easy they are to make. (hint: don't pay $2.00 a cookie at the coffeehouse any more!!) these are great as is, or dip the bottom edge of each cookie in melted chocolate (mmm... dark chocolate) note: the prep time includes cooling times
