Crisp Almond Biscotti (Italian Biscotti with Almonds) are typical Italian
cookies that were born in Tuscany during the ‘600 century. The proper name of these almond biscotti is “Cantucci” and their first citation in an official document is from 1691, when they were defined “sliced cookies made with flour, sugar and eggs”. Almonds were added in the recipe used for Caterina de’ Medici, and were definitely used since XIX century. Today these biscotti can be found all around the world, being one of the most popular Italian sweets. They’re called Biscotti, due to the meaning of this word which is: twice (bis) –baked (cotti): the first time the whole loaf the second time they’re baked sliced.

Since they are very dry, biscotti traditionally are served with a drink,
into which they may be dunked. In Italy they are typically served as
an after-dinner dessert with a Tuscan fortified wine called Vin Santo
(regional dessert wine). They can also be paired to a cup of hot coffee or
cappuccino, milk and black tea, or be an original pairing for a vanilla or
chocolate ice cream.
