Studded with nuts, dappled in chocolate, or dotted with dried fruit, biscotti, Italy’s unique twice-baked cookies, have a crunchy, toasty, enduring appeal. Perfect for dunking into coffee, tea, or Vin Santo, they’re easy to make and transform a simple bowl of ice cream or sorbet into a special dessert. With savory ingredients swapped for the sweet ones, biscotti are a delicious accent to a cheese platter.

Enjoy traditional flavors such as Hazelnut or Anise, coffeehouse neo-classics like Cranberry-Pistachio, tempting new versions such as Browned Butter and Toblerone, or savory ones, including Mountain Gorgonzola and Walnut, and taste the perfection of a classic cookie. With colorful stripes, poppy patterns, and adorable illustrated photographs, CIAO BISCOTTI gives these delicious treats the festive treatment they deserve!
