This is day 2 of my #20DaysOfCookies campaign to post a new gluten free dairy free recipe each day. Enjoy recipe #1: Snickerdoodle here.
Biscotti: A twice-baked cookie ideally suited for dunking into a hot beverage.
Biscotti is a hard cookie and that is why it is best used for dunking in a cup of tea or hot coffee. (You know I love my tea! Share your favorite tea with my: #TeaWithCarrie)
