Biscotti the biscuit for the health conscious!
The final product
Biscotti is Italian for twice cooked. This is the biscuit for those who don't want to feel guilty for indulging. Apart from the eggs and sugar this is a good biscuit that fills the sweet niche but doesn't fill the fat one! I love eating Biscotti with tea and coffee and I have been known to stick one in a creme caramel and call it dessert.
