62 calorie /355 mg sodium~ VEGETABLE & WILD RICE SOUP Made by my CHEF HUSBAND!

Almond Anise Seed Biscotti

Make sure you have a cookie baking sheet in addition to a biscotti* pan {*they are long rectangle pans specificly for biscotti ;Wilton makes them. If you do not have a biscotti pan ,you will have to shape the rectangle yourself and then your servings amount will depend on how you cut them on a cookie baking sheet.
These biscotti are the perfect accompaniment to morning tea or coffee~dunking allowed and preferred ,but not too long or they'll break in the liquid! They have a licorice taste {from the anise seed}. You can find the anise seed in the Baking setion of your grocery store where all the other extracts/spices are .It is anise seed .
