Bending the Rules: Biscotti

I love biscotti. It's really just an excuse--and a really good one, at that--to eat cookies for breakfast. The fact that they are Italian and "high class" isn't all that bad either. A long crisp cookie with succulent almonds and anise and a generous drizzling of chocolate on the top. They say that biscotti is perfect for dipping, and it is, if you want to find cookie pieces in the bottom of your cup of coffee. Even so, they are probably the best complement to coffee for breakfast that you'll ever find. Now if only all the butter and sugar didn't occasionally wreak havoc with my tummy...

  1. I most certainly agree. Biscotti is a delightful with a good cup of tea (or coffee, if you must).
