Candy Cane Chocolate Chip Biscotti Cookie

I grew up eating Italian biscotti cookies. My grandma would make them during the holidays. This is a new recipe I came up with this year to share with my family and friends. I wanted to keep the tradition of making biscotti cookies going on in our family. The combination of peppermint and chocolate chips with almond is yummy. I think this recipe is easy for anyone to make. If you have never had a biscotti cookie I suggest you try my recipe. Happy Holidays!
