The enticing aroma of anise filled the kitchen and wafted through the house as Mom baked these crisp cookies when I was a girl. Mom always kept a big glass jar filled so we had a supply of these traditional cookies on hand. —Cookie Curci, San Jose, California

This Biscotti is really good & easy to make. I always thought it was a huge process to make Biscotti but decided to give it a try when I was in Anchorage at my Sister's house. I have now made it three times & it gets easier each time. Even the four year old loves it. He calles it 'crunchy bars'.
