What Is Biscotti?
Biscotti gets its name from the Medieval Latin word biscoctus, which means "twice-cooked or baked." Biscotti, also known as cantucci, are Italian almond cookies that originated in Prato, Tuscan city. They're twice baked, oblong in shape, dry and crunchy, and can be dipped in a drink, usually Vin Santo. The biscuits are oblong-shaped almond biscuits that are made dry and crunchy by cutting the dough loaf while it is still hot from the oven. The cookies can be made with a variety of ingredients such as nuts, dried fruit, or chocolate, but they're commonly made with almonds and anise, a sweet licorice flavoring.
What To Serve with Biscotti?
Biscotti, with their crunchy nuts and tasty add-ins like dried fruit, are the ideal snack for any coffee or tea lover. Biscotti are typically served with a drink, which they may be dipped into since they are so dry. In Italy, they're usually eaten with an after-dinner dessert with vin santo, a Tuscan fortified wine. They are most often served with coffee, such as cappuccinos and lattes, or black tea outside of Italy.

How To Store Biscotti?
Keep your biscotti cookies in airtight containers, but not completely hermetically sealed ones. They'll remain fresh if there's a tiny breeze!
Biscotti may be stored for up to 3 weeks in a variety of containers, including glass, ceramics, and biscuit tins. A paper towel put at the bottom of the container will absorb any extra moisture, ensuring the crispness of the vegetables. They may also be wrapped firmly and frozen. They may be frozen for up to three months.
