Growing up Italian, I think I was given biscotti as a teething cookie while a toddler. I always remember them being around in a big glass jar. The adults would imbibe in a dark coffee dipping their crunchy biscotti in between gulps. This crunchy cookie is the favorite of kids (especially when dipped in chocolate) and adults. The crunchier the better. They are so versatile too. You can add whatever your favorites are from nuts to fruits and chocolates. My Meyer lemon tree is bursting with lemons and I wanted to use them as the fresh essence in these delectable cookies.
