Biscotti is great with coffee and for dunking. It can be changed to suit everyone. I like to add a little orange zest or juice instead of rum for a bright flavor. Almonds can be exchanged for the chocolate chips. I like them softer so I don't toast them for 10 minutes, just a few minutes are enough. It's really an open canvas for whatever you can think up. During the holidays we usually go for the traditional ones with anise. Enjoy
