Eons have passed

...yet again....

But I have a fractured rib or something...so I am spending more time in the house and just watched a biscotti making video from 2011 of Nonna Pia, making Almond Biscotti.   Such a sweet little old lady of 89 years. .... using all the mod cons...and showing us how she does it.

I have never made biscotti quite this way and certainly never had soft, almost cake-batter-like dough.  But I tried it and I really like the look of it when it is finished.  Looks so rustic.  All lumpy and a bit browned on the very tops of the bumps of course...

Here are a couple pics so you can see what it looks like.

If you would like to see her video .. just click on this
