We’re on Day 2 of our Holiday cookie recipes. Today, we have Granny’s Mandel Braite Biscotti.
Like most biscotti cookies, Mandel Braite Biscotti are twice baked to make them crisp and firm. They go great with coffee, tea, hot chocolate, or milk.
I like these cookies because they aren’t too sweet. The recipe comes from Granny, my neighbor’s mother. Everything she makes is delicious. Did you try her Granny’s Heavenly Granola Bars? You can’t go wrong with one of her recipes. Try them yourself.
