Potty about Biscotti

I have always loved a bit if biscotti with a coffee. I am at a loss as to why I haven’t made it before. Last night I decided to give it a go as an Easter gift for my parents. It was simple and came our very well. I did find the dough rather strange as I make a fair bit of bread and it was far more moist. Must have done it right though as it came out great. I am going to have another go tonight with a different flavour.

  1. They look fab!!
    My tip- If you can find a small bit of half drainpipe, pack your biscotti dough into it to form a perfect half-circle, turn out onto baking sheet and bake then slice on a diagonal.
