These biscotti are the real deal. The classic and traditional taste of anise. Not too sweet and just right. And just like the name decribes, twice baked.

They can be dipped in dark chocolate after cooling for a richer flavor. I prefer a "naked" biscotti in it's true form.

A batch of these for a gift, and your friends will love you! They make a beautiful presentation.

Enjoy!
