Tuscan Almond Biscotti

This dessert is in honor of my Grandfather, Mario Marini. He was an Italian immigrant who loved America. His dream as a child in Florence was to move to America and to have a better life for his family. He loved America so much that at the age of 40 and with a wife and three daughters, he signed up to defend this great country of ours when we went to war – WWII – not knowing if he would ever return home. His love for America was truly remarkable and he would have done anything to protect and defend her at all costs.   My grandmother Marini was a fine Italian cook and made almond biscotti a few times a year and I have been told these were my Grandpa’s favorites.  Please click here for the recipe.

Thank you, Grandpa, and thank you to those who have paid the ultimate price to defend our freedom.  You will never be forgotten.
