Classic-Style Almond Biscotti from Tuscany

These classic biscotti should be in your pantry for all occasions. The stunning blue package holds crisp, sweet, twice-baked cookies that are perfect on their own, crumbled over ice cream or dunked in Vin Santo.

The ingredients are simple and fresh — whole eggs, flour, almonds, pine nuts and sugar — but the flavor is far more than the sum of its parts. Biscotti means "twice-baked". The dough is formed into logs for the first baking. When the cookies have cooled, they're cut into their traditional shape and baked again, crisping them to perfection. The double-baking process gives these cookies a long shelf life, but it's made longer by the special bag designed expressly for this biscotti. The bag is double-lined with foil and plastic, to ensure the cookies don't get stale and arrive to you in perfect condition.

If you can make it to Prato, Italy, on Via Ricasoli, you'll find the quaint little shop of Antonio Mattei. They pack the signature blue bags into adorable hat boxes. Pick up some biscotti and stroll over to enjoy a cappucino and see the stunning Castello Dell'imperatore. But on the chance you cannot squeeze in a trip to Italy this winter, we're happy to bring this delicious and authentic treat straight to your doorstep.

Great gifts to give.

Well received gifts to give to friends & family after we returned from Italy. It was so much easier than stuffing bags of biscotti in our luggage or carry-on bags. Arrived quickly, packed securely and without breakage. Highly recommend.
