seeing as I ate all my flatmates biscotti the other night (with permission!) when we were fossicking the flat for after dinner treats.... perhaps I should attempt to make him some more.

I made biscotti yesterday, but again lamented the texture - so will be glad to try a different recipe. The taste was great though and went down will with coffee at home group.
