Marelie’s comments about this recipe:

Trust me to create a twist on the sacred biscotti biscuit…I ask forgiveness to all Italian citizens visiting this website and discovering this recipe. I do not have to ask for forgiveness for how this biscuit taste, though! It even tasted fantastic in its frozen form before baking. Serve it for teatime, dessert or pack it in lunch boxes.
