TWD Lenox Almond Biscotti

This week was Gretchen's from Canela & Comino to choose a recipe and I really liked her choice !
When I read cookbooks I enjoy very much the writer's stories before the actual recipe so I really appreciate Dorie Greenspan's "Baking from my home to yours" that's very rich in anecdotes !
Please visit Tuesdays With Dorie for many beautiful biscotti!
I had tryed this biscotti once before when I and my friend Cristina catered the wedding of a couple of friends (Piero and Fabrizia)

And after the mini muffins (zucchini feta and pine nuts, and pancetta and pecorino), the salmon gravlax on blinis and creme fraiche, the grape and gorgonzola rolled in almonds, the lasagne al brasato, barley salad with grilled vegetabled and shrimps, roasted veal with lemon caramel and fennel seeds, the salad with pommegranate seeds and granny smiths apples, the cake with pate feuillettee, custard, whipped cream, strawberries, pistachios meringue, lemon curd and so on ...............we thought the guest might still enjoy some biscotti ... and they actually did !
