What is BISCOTTI?
The word 'biscotti' literally translates from the Italian language as 'twice baked' and loosely refers to cookies in general. Authentic biscotti is baked twice, which has two distinct benefits: (1) decreasing moisture, which helps extend shelf life, and (2) to concentrate the flavor of the biscotti. Extending the effective shelf life is an important benefit in getting these gourmet cookies to market, and is enhanced by the use of packaging that keeps these biscotti 'air tight' and guards against moisture damaging the texture of these crisp cookies. Santa Barbara Biscotti is made of the best quality ingredients; baking twice removes the majority of the moisture, concentrating the delicious flavors, and giving our biscotti their wonderful and satisfying 'crunchy - but not hard' that is characteristic of an authentic biscotti.
Biscotti (pronounced bis-coat-tee), has been enjoyed throughout Europe since the 13th century. Literally translated from the Italian language, 'biscotti' means 'twice baked.'
