Biscotti does live on in our family. My Mom likes to make them and since she makes so many, I figure, I will let her then I can make other things. So this is her thing now. These are her biscotti's.
This is her favorite recipe because you can mix things up. She doubles it whenever she makes it and adds different mix ins.
Recipe easily doubled.
