Cassava Almond Anise Biscotti

Cassava Almond Anise Biscotti

These are a long time favorite in our little family.  The original recipe is from a few renditions back and was given to me by the owners of a local Italian bistro that has since closed up shop.  I could never eat them myself… but after watching me observe my family’s enjoyment, they gifted me the recipe to alter at home.  This version is with cassava contains no sugar so is much easier on my system. They are delightful alone or with a hot drink.  A perfect treat for coming down from the sugar high of the holidays and into the new year. xo
