You say Bisc-O-tti, I say Bisc-o-tti

Featured Recipe: Double Chocolate Biscotti
I once dated an Italian man who insisted I pronounce biscotti with the long “o” it is suppose to be said with. But I can promise you, when I am around just about anyone else in my small Southern town, they look strangely at me when I do. It always harkens me back to “you say tomato (long A) and I say tomato (short A).
When I it comes to these cookie-biscuits, I don’t care what you call them as long as delicious, magnificent, amazing or something of the sort is included. I adapted this recipe from Karen Baker, a popular Pastry Chef in the Raleigh-Durham area of NC. She shared it with me years ago and while cleaning out some files I came across it again.
Double Chocolate Biscotti is a crunchy, wonderfully chocolate-y biscuit that deserves to be in a category all by itself with or without a long “O.” Since we all need extra desserts during the holidays coming up, dusting off this old favorite is perfect timing.

What you're saying..
I have all three of your cookbooks and have given them many times as gifts.
Last night I made the mini meatloaves – again -- such a time saver! Just getting dinner on the table some nights is such a challenge – particularly this time of year.
