Biscotti, the traditional Italian cookieis crunchy and nutty. It is said to have originated in 14th-century Tuscany in Italy. Biscotti is traditionally made with almonds.

Here Chef Tejasvi makes them with almonds and pistachios. The biscotti are baked twice to dry draw out the moisture from them. This makes the biscotti hard, firm and crunchy and also gives them a long shelf-life.

Chef Tejasvi’s crunchy and firm biscotti are a perfect way to start the day on a sweet note with a cup of coffee.
