Banana Bread Coffee + Chocolate Chip Biscotti=Pure Goodness!

So after stopping by the shop one afternoon I'm in love with a new coffee we recently started serving and selling. Banana Nut Bread-one word is delicious and so comforting every morning for me! The aroma of baked banana bread fills your's wonderful!
And what is better than a hot cup of banana nut bread? Chocolate Chip Biscotti to go with it. Yes! Bingo! Chopped hazelnuts, chocolate chips, and dried cranberries make these oh so scrumptious! (although I think chopped pecans might make them a little bit better!) They're Italian! Baked twice for a crunchy texture, biscotti are meant to be dunked in coffee.

Use a foolproof sugar cookie mix for an easy way to coffee-shop biscotti, the Italian twice-baked cookie. The mix might suprise you for an ingredient but I promise know one else will know! What a special treat for a friend that needs a pick me up too! Let us wrap your homemade biscotti up with some freshly ground coffee!
