  4. Hi Lynn, I love biscotti, but always buy them. I haven't yet tried to make them. My sister always makes them and she keeps telling me to try it, they are easy. I'll have to try your recipe, it sounds delicious. Thanks for sharing it with Foodie Friends Friday Christmas Cookie Exchange Party this week.
