What an interesting post. I never knew about American vs. Italian biscotti. Your biscotti look really great, with those chunks of chocolate and nuts. I'll have to try making them sometime.

I also enjoyed the passage from Leon's novel. And -- dunking is the best! (Loved the photo taken in Venice, as well; it makes me want to be there.)


ahh...dunking is the "stuff" of life~! It is a human right ;)


I love the ritual of dipping biscotti in coffee, very civilized.

Thanks Lisa. They are really good, hence rather addictive.

I am with you, Maryann.

I agree with you, Peter.

Lori Lynn

As I read your post at 8:45 this Saturday morning, I wish, I wish, I had some of your biscotti to go with my coffee!


Glad you didn't have to give up your Italian biscotti indulgence. ;-)

Paz (craving biscotti now)


I am a great fan of biscotti, but I didn't know there was a difference between American and Italian. I will have to try yours to see what authentic biscotti should taste like!

Your book has been added to my reading list too. Thanks for the review!


maledizione! I FORGOT another time, I really wanted to participate this time. I'm getting more and more fed up with myself....

Simona Carini

I wish I could make some materialize in front of your coffee cup, Lori Lynn.

Paz, I am wondering what I would find if I were to roam around stored in NYC.

Hi Mary. I developed the recipe to suit my personal taste. I like keeping my baked goods low-sugar, which is certainly a distinctive quality.

Dear Ilva, you are certainly forgiven and, please, don't get fed up with yourself. Are we going to get a slice of your pastiera?


i don't like biscotti - i've only eaten it in california. but i love the sound of your recipe. it's been bookmarked.

Simona Carini

Hi Bee. My version is not very sweet and you taste almonds and chocolate a lot. Let me know if you give it a try.
