The No-Gimmick Cookie
There are no tricks to Italian biscotti; no hidden ingredients or low-fat butter substitutes—just pantry staples that aren't necessarily decadent on their own, but when combined, deliver the perfect combination of sweetness and crunch. This recipe from cookbook author Stacy Adimando is totally customizable. Even if you don't tweak it, though, it's a wonderfully simple (and healthy) end-of-the-meal treat.
