I’m so happy to share this recipe with all of you today, I love all kinds of butter, you know peanut butter, almond butter, sunflower butter, etc. And for this month theme at The Leftovers Club our friend Faye Rodriguez choose for us to make and send delicious treats with nut butter.
And what a perfect opportunity it is for me, because I recently start using more and more almond butter, so many of the recipes I used to make with peanut butter, I have substituted it with almond butter.
Surprisingly most of the recipes I made are pretty delicious, and I still have to make many, many more, so stay tuned for

Biscotti sounds fancy and difficult, but don’t worry it is the most easy cookie to make, and you can use any flavor combination you desire to make it more interesting.
For me nothing beats the flavor of lemon and almond, and my biscotti recipe is not to sweet so for sure you can definitely dip your biscotti in the coffee or hot chocolate. The main idea here is eat more Biscotti!
