Today’s Five Food Finds about biscotti:

The origin of the word, Biscotti (plural form of “biscotto”), is from the medieval Latin word biscoctus, meaning “twice-cooked/baked.”

In Italian, the word “biscotto” means “one biscuit” or “cookie.” Thus biscotti is the plural—two or more cookies.

The first documented recipe for biscotti (Biscotti of Genoa) is a centuries-old manuscript discovered by 18th century scholar Amadio Baldanzi.
