Homemade biscotti make a wonderful Christmas gift. They are a bit of project, but worth the effort, and it’s easy to create your own unique flavor combinations. The cookies are baked twice so that they stand up to repeated dunking in your favorite hot beverage. I used whole wheat pastry flour in this recipe, which gives the cookies a bit heartier flavor. Really you can add any kind of goodies you want to the basic biscotti recipe, but New Mexico pistachios and candied orange peel are a great combo. I made my own candied orange peels (see my blog for details!) but you can find them in many grocery stores this time of year.
