Biscotti, known also as cantucci, are Italian biscuits that originated in the Tuscan city of Prato. Classic biscotti cookies are dry and crisp, perfect for dipping in hot coffee or tea.
Biscotti are baked twice, which gives them their dry, crunchy texture. The dough is first shaped into a log and baked, then sliced diagonal and bake for second time until they are crisp. Biscotti can have many flavors and it can have different nuts or dried fruits. I used pistachio and cardamom here which are a perfect match together. You can store the biscotti in an airtight container at room temperature. They will stay fresh for 1-2 weeks. You can also wrap your biscotti airtight and store them in the freezer for 3 months.
