Expert Tips

  • Italian for “twice baked,” biscotti are Italian biscuits—or cookies—that are ideal for dipping into coffee or dessert wine. This minty version would go especially well dipped in hot chocolate!
  • A drop of red food color will turn these peppermint cookies a sweet shade of blushing pink.
