Biscotti also known as 'cantuccini' are the authentic Italian biscuits. The word 'biscotti' means twice-baked, and these type of biscuits are baked twice in oven. Basically these are oblong shaped as well as dry and crunchy in texture.
Due to baked twice, these are very dry and hence can be stored for a longer periods. The biscotti are served with a drink into which these are dunked and then consumed. But I like the crunchiness of biscotti, so I prefer as it is.
These mainly resemble a lot with rusk texture wise, but taste wise biscotti are more crunchy due to addition of variety of nuts into it. Now-a-days anyone can find a variety of biscotti in market.
Here I have added chocolate and pistachio and no egg is added, hence the result is the eggless chocolate pistachio biscotti. Must give a try for this Christmas.

Notes

  • While slicing the baked log, keep patience and slowly slice out because it tends to break.
