Biscotti have always been a thing of fascination and intimidation for me. I remember first hearing about biscotti and trying one when my brother Robert used to work at a Costco bakery. He’d bring home all sorts of, to us, exotic baked goods. Growing up we’d mainly been exposed to Cuban baked goods. So this somewhat harder but sweet cookies were so good and I longed for more every time we’d finish what he brought. I never understood how they got the cookie shaped in the way it is either and after making this recipe I realized how silly I had been thinking. The ease of making this recipe is unreal but I will say it takes a little more attention than what it would to bake regular cookies. This recipe would work best with mini chocolate chips. I used regular since that’s what I had in my pantry and had to use them. Make them for your next cookie swap, picnic, or for your own indulgence. This recipe yields a lot of chocolate chip biscotti so I cut the recipe in half and made the biscotti mini sized. Enjoy!
