I love coconut almonds and chocolate. Well here is my Grandmother's biscotti recipe that usually calls for just anisette but these have gone to a gourmet version. I put those ingredients into her basic recipe and got another fantastic cookie recipe. Hope if you like the combinations you will love these too!
