THE DRY DETAILS
Cantuccini are Italian almond biscuits originating from Prato, Tuscany in Italy. It is also called “biscotti,” which means “twice-cooked,” because that is how it is made. Being baked twice means the cantuccini became very dry, making them easy to store for long periods, and easily brought along on long journeys.
