I love biscotti. I love any excuse to eat a cookie for breakfast. I really needed a reason to whip up these morning delights though, so I was so excited when my friend Jessi asked me to lunch. Jessi and I have always shared a love of good, artisan ingredients, adventurous cooking, and eclectic ideas. I knew that I had to make her these biscotti because she and I also share an intense love of coffee.
Cut to the gifting scene: Jessi comes to my door (I haven’t seen her in months) and she is holding two cappuccinos! She brought me a coffee! AND when I gave her the biscotti, she said she almost made me biscotti too! Ah, great minds really do think alike.
A bit about the cookie: I like to use the same base biscotti recipe and change the mix-ins. I always mean to try a new biscotti recipe and be adventurous, but mine are just so good that I never end up making something different. Mine have absolutely no butter or oil in them so I feel like they are even more of an excuse to eat cookies in the morning!
