Bake for 10 minutes, turn biscotti and bake the other side for 10 minutes. Leave to cool and store in an airtight container.


Well, I think today went well. My poor hubby is feeling under the weather and asked me to make some healthy-ish munchables. So I do as I always do in dire emergencies and consult Susan V’s recipe index. The biscotti I made are an adaptation of one of her recipes. I don’t know what I would do without her blog. Susan you are a saint!
