“I found this recipe on the web about 5 years ago and can't remember where I found it. I wish I could so that they received the credit. I am a biscotti nut and this was the first recipe (and only) that I used. The results are fabulous and they are so easy to make even though they are triple-baked. I did change the ingredients just a little. Once you eat these you will never go back to store-bought again. I like them best dipped in a cup of hot tea.”
