Kahlua Chocolate Almond Biscotti

This is a tasty cookie with a chocolatey-nutty crunch and mild Kahlua flavor. These are perfect for coffee with or without added Kahlua (I have tried them both ways!). ;-)

In the photo, my cookies are twice glazed. I used Nestle's Dark Chocolate and spread it lightly along the side of each cookie. Then, I piped white chocolate on top, mostly to tell which cookie is which as I am experimenting with different biscotti recipes!

NOTE: Do not attempt to divide the dough into three logs and fit on one pan, unless you want the entire pan covered. You will have to cut the cooked logs more than necessary.

I hope you enjoy these!
