Hello my Etsy friend. You have a terrific blog. Food and Crochet, two of my favorite things. And to see this delicious looking Biscotti on the first page was a sign of lots of good reading and fun as I follow your blog. I love Biscotti but have never tried to make it my self. I will be making these. As so as I make a batch I will post you a picture. So excited to try this. Sincerely, Debby Gibson
