Nutty Biscotti: Keep it or give it!

 Biscotti, the cookie that's so dry and hard ^^, but dip it into your coffee and let it soak, it will be soft and become so delicious that you might want more and more. 

Nutty Biscotti
 It's one of the best cookie to eat with a cup of black (and delicious) coffee. There are a lot of recipe for this simple cookie, with or without butter, add some nut, dry fruits, chocolate, different kinds of flour or spice the possibility is endless.
Mostly I make the one with some butter because my family don't like it to be very hard, but today I really yearn for some of the basic biscotti cookie the one that contains no butter at all. This cookie contains a lot of nuts (three kinds of it, almond, hazelnut and pistachio), you can use other kinds of nut if you like ^^. 
Because of the dryness, it has good keeping quality, and great for giving too but, that's for you to decide, keeping or giving, it's your choice, hehe.

Hi, Jas
The cookies will be less likely to break if you wait for it to cool before cutting it, ^^, anyway I cut mine while hot and there are some of them that broke too -*-.
