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.

First of all the title should read Cheap Fast Great! I found your book at a Scholastic book fair at my daughter's elementary school and am absolutely floored by it. I subscribe to many food magazines, I have many other cookbooks but hands down when I want something different, easy and delicious I go straight for your book. So, thank you very much, and my family thanks you as well.
