8 Biscotti Recipes for Gift Giving

Everywhere I look, it's cookie madness. Cookie baking, cookie swaps, cookie decorating, etc. I love cookies as much as the next person but how about something a little different? Similar to cookies, I happen to be a big fan of biscotti. They're crispy, crunchy and even better when enjoyed with a cup of coffee, tea or even hot chocolate. With a good base recipe, the sky's the limit when it comes to mixing in other ingredients or adding some interesting flavors. Did I mention how super simple and quick they are to make? And as for holiday gift giving, these treats are sturdy to package up. So this year, try some thing different and consider making up a few batches of these 8 Biscotti Recipes for Gift Giving...
