Biscotti

It seems that my kitchen has come to galletil invasion! jjj… because lately most of the recipes that I bake, cookies or pastries.I like, because so I can share them, since they are recipes that get enough quantity and I love to surprise people that I want to with a package of homemade biscuits… also I love always have the full jar in the kitchen and see how Jorge and Eloy are eaten as pipes; I usually take me to work for lunch, but at home despite the temptations, I am able to eat an Apple and stay so to taste… I’m happy preparing them!
