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.

Have you ever considered an aged asiago biscotti with a class of chilled Prosecco? Or how about a pepper Jack biscotti with a pint of ale? We think you should, so we've rounded up three of Domenica's delicious savory biscotti recipes for you to try:

Crispy Pancetta BiscottiClick here for the recipe.

Because what recipe isn't made better by the addition of delicious cured pork belly?

Mountain Gorgonzola and Walnut BiscottiClick here for the recipe.

This crispy biscotti has lots of tangy blue cheese flavor thanks to crumbles of pungent mountain gorgonzola.

Smoky Gouda BiscottiClick here for the recipe.

Like cheese and crackers (but better), these Gouda crisps pack a nice smoky punch thanks to a pinch of paprika.
