Ready to bake some biscotti?! And I’m not talking about the usual Italian almond cookies. But something just as crunchy, and just as delicious as the classic biscotti, filled with whole toasted pistachios, a touch of orange aroma and half dipped in melted chocolate. And for an extra kick to your tastebuds make sure to sprinkle these cookies with more crushed pistachios, OR drizzle them with melted white chocolate. Your choice!
Take a look.
Which one is calling your name?!? I’d personally go with one (or at least one) of each. Cause, when two different cookies are in front of me, it’s really my duty and responsibility to taste them both :) To savor and compare.
Now I can safely state that you can’t go wrong with either choice.
What I love most about these biscotti is not just the flavor combination (chocolate, orange and pistachio is a must-try!). But the crunchiness and crumbi-ness (if there is such a word) of these cookies.
Most biscotti you find around are a little dry and sometimes jaw-breaking crunchy. With today’s recipe you’ll get a crunchy enough cookie that is great for dunking (think: cappuccino, latte, steamed milk, tea …), but not too hard nor too dry, which is perfectly enjoyable all by itself. I promise, you won’t break anything with my biscotti. Well… except maybe for your diet! These are so good you won’t be able to stop at just one.
