Mondays usually call for coffee, and coffee calls for a sweet, dunkable side treat. I became a fan of biscotti as soon as I tried out this recipe. It won’t break your teeth like a lot of other biscotti I’ve tried in coffee shops. It has the slightest amount of softness in the center, without loosing that crunchy outside. This almond biscotti is warming, rustic, and not too sweet. Plus, baking these will fill your home with an aroma reminiscent of an almond cookie.
Making homemade biscotti will require a lot of steps, and a little bit of patience, but overall this is a very easy recipe! Other than rolling the mixture out into logs, it’s a lot like making cookie dough.
I like to wrap these biscotti up in a cute tin with a bag of gourmet coffee to give as yummy gifts.
