The name biscotti is derived from 'bis' meaning twice in Italian and 'cotto' meaning baked or cooked. Our recipe is a quick version of the traditional one where the sticky dough is first shaped into a 12 inch (30 cm) log and baked until firm. After a short cooling period, the log is sliced into diagonal slices and baked again to draw out the moisture thus producing crisp, dry textured cookies that have a long shelf life. Serve the biscotti with a hot cup of cappuccino for a deliciously simple finish to the Italian fare.

Hesitant at first... I still made up my mind to take up this dreadful task... and to my surprise... I sailed through it... Deliciously crisp, these Biscotti's are worth every effort... Dunk 'em... into hot cappuccino... and unwind your long day... or even as a light dessert after Dinner.

Good recipe. Requires skill and practice in baking.
