I finally get the love people have for Biscotti. I honestly didn’t understand it before. Why was there such adoration for a crunchy type treat that seemed to be having an identity crisis? Is it a cookie or is it a biscuit? Besides that, all the Biscotti I had in the past seemed dry and way too crunchy for my taste.
Once I started drinking coffee, it finally sank in. Biscotti is the perfect, dip in your coffee or eat alongside a hot cup of tea kind of treat. The sweet, crunchy texture of the biscotti and a warm beverage are the ideal combination.
There are so many different Biscotti recipes out there. When I was looking through my pantry trying to decide what kind of Biscotti to make with my coffee, I found a jar of Biscoff spread. How about Biscoff Biscotti? If you love Biscoff cookies and love Biscotti, then Biscoff Biscotti is one tongue twister sure to please your taste buds!
On a side note – one other thing I discovered about Biscotti is that I love it best when warm. A warm Biscotti alongside a warm cup of coffee is perfection in the morning. My Frigidaire Symmetry Double Oven just so happens to have a “warm” feature, which I use all the time (it very well might be my favorite feature of the oven). I turn one of the ovens on to “keep warm” and keep pancakes and waffles warm, warm up homemade bread and now… I warm up my Biscotti in the oven which keeps it nice and crisp, just the way it should be!
However you like your Biscotti… warm, cold, hot or don’t care, if you love Biscotti and you adore Biscoff cookies, you will really enjoy this recipe!
