I first found this recipe about 20 years ago. At least I hope this is the same recipe! I think it is. I just rediscovered it today. I live in Massachusetts now, but I first "googled" this recipe when I lived in Quebec City, Canada. I carried the paper copy in my mother's cookbooks It's a recipe that has never failed me. Always delicious! I'll be making some this evening as Valentine's gifts for my co-workers. Best, Biscotti Buddy ;)
