COOKIES AND BISCOTTI

Brief hazelnut biscotti description from Franco Palamides,  Owner/Pastry Chef

An Italian cookie, the word Biscotti means “twice-baked”. Biscotti are first baked in a loaf, then sliced and toasted. This second trip to the oven draws off moisture, and results in a crisp, dry texture, and a long shelf life.   These hazelnut biscuits come from Tuscia - the Italian historical region that comprised the southern territories under Etruscan influence.

Today Tuscia coincides with the province of Viterbo - the place I come from and the place I still belong to.  My family is from Faleria.

The recipe is from my mom, Margherita.
