Cantucci Baresi or Almond Biscotti... great with coffee or tea or after dinner dipped  in Vin Santo or any other sweet wine!

They are also great dipped in coffee or a cappuccino!

Make sure to separate the pieces a bit before you put them back in the oven for round 2, makes them have a bit more of a crunch! Came out very tasty - thanks!

Really nice crunchy biscuites.
I just found that the dough was a bit too sticky. It it the way it is supposed to be or should I add some more flour?

so so delicious-easy to make. I drizzled Baileys icing[ baileys & icing sugar mixed]and melted nutella across each cookie-very pretty.
