The origin and history of the National Biscotti Day are anonymous. The Biscotti have a long tradition and a centuries-old manuscript has first documented the recipe for biscotti (Biscotti of Genoa). It was discovered by 18th-century scholar Amadio Baldanzi. Biscotti are usually the almond biscuits which originated in Prato, a city in Italy. The cookies are delicious and crunchy as the result of a twice-baking process. A dough of flour, sugar, eggs, and unskinned or unroasted almonds are used in the preparation of the Biscotti.
In the cookie preparation, Pine nuts, walnuts, dry fruits like raisins are also used. The cookies are oblong-shaped almond biscuits derived from the Italy word biscotto that means one biscuit or cookie. Biscotti is the plural form, and hence it means two or more cookies. It is traditionally served with a sweet white dessert wine named Vin Santo. The Biscotti are twice-baked, it can be preserved for a long time. The cookies were often taken during long journeys and wars by Roman troops. The almond cookies are a perfect combination when served with coffee.
