Nutty Biscotti

Remember the kek lapis episode? Prune and horlicks? Now one would ask, what did you do with the rest of the egg whites ? Easy, just make biscotti! This recipe for biscotti uses only egg whites and quite a number of them! SO what better that these thinly sliced crunchy twice baked cookies filled with assorted nuts!

  2. Love it that you’ve made it so thin!.. I don’t have to worry about it breaking my teeth! Biscotti has always given me the teeth breaking phobia!
