Have you always wanted to make a biscotti recipe, but thought it looked too difficult? I must admit, I thought it looked too hard until I went to a friend's place and she had made this biscotti recipe, for us to have with a coffee. I was so impressed with her effort that I asked for the recipe and started making them myself. I was surprised and relieved that they were so easy to make, with ingredients I already had in the pantry. Who knew? If you have kids, you can also cut them up into bite-size pieces to make them easier to eat. Be warned - they disappear fast!
The original recipe had chopped almonds instead of walnuts, however, we changed the recipe as our family really enjoy the flavour of walnuts. Feel free to adjust this recipe and make them for yourself, this weekend. I know I will be!
