Nani's Biscotti


I have been baking all afternoon, and well into the evening. I started with the sweet, and spicey aroma of gingerbread, and ended with my Italian grandmothers delicious anise flavored biscotti. I had help rolling and dipping from my youngest son, Roman. He was a very welcomed helper!

Wow, it all looks so wonderful I can almost smell it! Thanks for the recipe. I'm going to give those a try.
Wishing you and your family a wonderful Holiday season. :)

I think of biscotti as those dry sticks in the jar next to the barista. These look positively nummy! Thanks for the recipe.

Umm that looks so good. I'm afraid if I were helping, there would not be much left. I don't think I have ever had biscotti, but it look delicious.
