What is it?
This crunchy twice-baked Italian cookie is a delicious snack on its own. But biscotti can also be a component of more complex dishes, crumbled over a parfait or crushed to make a crust.
Don’t have it?
Substitue amaretti, another crumbly almond cookie.
How to choose:
You can buy good-quality biscotti at some supermarkets and Italian specialty markets. They’re also simple to make from scratch.
Potatoes and leeks baked in a buttery crust are punctuated with the snap of aged provolone and the flavor of rosemary.
