#234 I miss biscotti – 1

In the United States biscotti are what in Italy is actually Cantucci, or Cantuccini, or biscotti di Prato, bis-cotti, ‘twice-cooked’, almond cookies, from Prato, Tuscany

la morte loro (lit. ‘their death’,  ‘the perfect mix’) is with Vinsanto, sweet tuscan wine

But the word biscotto, plural biscotti, is actually just the italian term for ‘cookies’ or ‘biscuits’
