Anise and Walnut Biscotti

Deneece Gursky


My family loves anise and they love biscotti. This is a biscotti recipe that starts with a mix and it is pretty easy to do. I made anise walnut flavor but you can use a lemon mix and lemon extract with a lemon glaze, or orange mix, orange extract and a chocolate or orange glaze, or maybe a white mix and almond extract, crushed almonds and a chocolate glaze. the possibilities are endless. We love our biscotti with our morning coffee. yum
