Crumbly Crunchy Biscotti

Crumbly Crunchy Biscotti

Today I celebrated The International Bake Cookie Day with my kids . 

We made biscotti . Being a very enthusiastic coffee drinker ,

the one thing that made my coffee better today was a big piece of Biscotti .

Biscotties are long crisp twice baked italian cookies .

They are time- consuming but also one of the easiest and tastiest cookie 

I have ever baked and eaten . Biscotti are very addictive and can be made in a wide 

variety of flavours ( orange zest , cranberry , blueberry , ginger , cinnamon , cappuccino )

My kids enjoyed them with the milk ,  me and my husband enjoyed the biscotti with coffee .

I plan to start my day tomorrow with a perfect piece of crumbly crunchy biscotti and my tea .

But truly I just can’t keep my hands away from that jar .

Just can’t stop nibbling on them.

I am so happy that my first attempt at making biscotti was a delicious success.
