Cookie Advent Calendar: Biscotti

I always use different nuts. Sometimes it is a muxture of almond, cashew and walnut, sometimes the cashew nut is replaced with a pecan, and pistachio is added to the whole mixture. So test it by yourself.

Another huge plus of this recipe for me is its ingredients and a simplicity of cooking. Just three main ingredients and nuts (all of these are in a photo below), whisk and bowl. So this recipe works well during camping time and its product is a good snack too.

This recipe is so simple that I’ve decided not to take detailed step-by-step photos.
