I learned the hard way that not everyone shares my appreciation for the delicate intricacies of a crispy biscotti. I don't want to go so far as to say that those people are wrong BUT I do question their sanity. (Just kidding) Perhaps biscotti is an acquired taste like that of a fine wine or complex coffee.
I'm not here to debate the issue but I really do not understand what it is about biscotti that people don't seem to like. They're crunchy, they're crispy, they're sweet, they're delightful. They go great with a morning cup of coffee, they make a perfect afternoon snack and a wonderful little dessert. I can think of no other food that is quite as versatile.

Chocolate biscotti. How in the world could people NOT like this stuff?
I'm not going to give up my mission to try and convert biscotti haters into biscotti lovers. I packaged some of my biscotti into Christmas gift worthy packages.
