If you’ve never had biscotti before, you’ve most likely seen them individually wrapped by the counter at any coffee shop. Our fresh-made versions of these long, crunchy cookies are crafted by baking a loaf of sweet bread, slicing it, and then re-baking those slices until they have become perfectly crispy. Their name is derived from the Italian word for this process, translating literally to “twice-baked.” Perhaps its fate that biscotti have earned themselves the reputation as the perfect companion to a cup of coffee or tea. In fact, we believe there’s no better way to start your morning than by sitting down to a steaming hot cup of your favorite hot beverage, flipping through the morning paper, and enjoying a perfectly crafted biscotti (or two).
Along with the typical ingredients that go into making this traditional treat, our biscotti cookies feature delicious nuts and cranberries to add flavor and texture. Eaten alone, these cookies are satisfyingly crunchy, much like a hard, crumbly granola bar. When eaten with tea or coffee, these cookies provide a sweet, crisp juxtaposition to the smooth, bitter, or herbal flavors of your beverage. Biscotti are known for their dunkability, going soft and crumbly almost immediately upon entering a particularly hot liquid, yet maintaining a solid crunch when they’re bitten into. Enjoy this biscotti at breakfast, tea-time, or as a snack on their own.
