    This treat is just perfect. It is mildly sweet, got lots of great texture and is a perfect accompaniment to a hot cup of coffee, hot chocolate or even just milk. The best thing about it is that this is a no-frills biscotti and doesn't require any fancy electrical gadgets to make - except for your oven. All the ingredients can be mixed by hand and is quick and easy. My husband loved it and so did our friends when I made it for Christmas after lunch.  -  24 Dec 2016  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
