Today was Day #4 of Chocolate and Gluten-Free Cookie Theme Week.

Firm, bar-shaped, Italian-style biscotti cookies have a longer shelf-life than many cookies, and are sometimes used for dunking in cappuccino or are nibbled on with a tiny glass of Vin Santo (Italian dessert wine).

Today's gluten-free Chocolate (and Almond) Biscottino from Amore, Inc. (Vista, CA) were crunchy, slightly crumbly, and stood up to a dip in some sherry -- the closest thing I had to Vin Santo.
