Biscotti wedding favors are a unique way to honor romance in the form of a cookie. But first, you may be wondering, "What is biscotti?" It is a long, thick nut flavored biscuit originally baked in Italy. Biscotti history tells us it is a traditional Italian wedding cookie and it's name means twice baked because that is exactly what happens to it. The dough is baked the first time in a log shape, and then it is sliced and baked again. This creates a crunchy, hard cookie that Italians love to dunk in coffee, wine and many other beverages. It is usually baked with almonds, but can be made with other nuts instead. Available in a variety of flavors including cherry, banana, or apricot makes them appeal to everyone in good taste.
Today, this traditional cookie can be dipped in chocolate and hand-decorated to become a perfect wedding favor. Any photo or text can be printed on the chocolate to make a unique, personalized cookie. This lends a contemporary or modern twist to a traditional biscotti cookie.
When favors are grouped together, the impact of the treats together becomes a decoration in itself. This presentation becomes more elegant with the addition of flowers and tablecloth.
