Surprise! These biscotti have a savory twist.

When you think of biscotti you probably picture a crispy slice of cookie (likely chocolate or almond flavored) that’s perfect for dunking into a cup of coffee, but these delicious twice-baked cookies have a savory side, too. In her new book, Ciao Biscotti: Sweet and Savory Recipes Celebrating Italy’s Favorite Cookie, cookbook author Domenica Marchetti explores all of the smoky, salty, and spicy possibilities.
