I recently learned that there are two distinct types of biscotti – Italian and American. American biscotti is softer and more cookie-like, while Italian biscotti is the kind that you could break your jaw on, the kind that definitely requires dunking. I prefer hard biscotti (I’m a dunker) and it’s nice to now know how to ask for it by name.
My eggnog latte biscotti are Italian biscotti with espresso powder, whole roasted hazelnuts, and an eggnog glaze. Eggnog latte biscotti are glorious dunked in coffee, but they are also a tremendous treat dunked in eggnog.
