Biscotti are a special class of biscuits, which are baked twice. This gives them a unique texture, which is firm to bite but soft on the palate! Baking twice also gives them a rich, well-done aroma.
This recipe shares the secret of making fabulous Almond Biscotti, with the aesthetic flavour of vanilla and cinnamon and the amazing crunch of almonds. You can serve them fresh and warm, or cool and store in an airtight container.
