Biscotti, plural for “biscotto” in Italian, meaning “twice-cooked,” are traditional Italian almond biscuits that originated in the city of Prato. These biscuits are characterized by their dry, crunchy texture and are made by baking the dough in a loaf, then slicing the loaf and baking the slices again until they become crisp. The double baking process gives biscotti their distinct dryness and crunch, making them ideal for dipping in beverages such as coffee, tea, or sweet dessert wines like Vin Santo.The classic version of biscotti contains almonds, but variations can include other nuts, dried fruits, chocolate chips, and various flavorings.

Biscotti have become popular worldwide, enjoyed not only as a dessert but also as a snack at any time of the day.
