Grandma Nita’s Fabulous Red Wine Biscotti Recipe

Mamma Mia! Everyone agrees Grandma Nita's Fabulous Red Wine Biscotti are the best!

♥ da story

It was a rough summer in the Gough household.

The twin peaks of the family– my bold daughter and I–butted heads until we nearly collapsed of exhaustion.

Grandma Nita stepped in to save the day by tutoring us both in how to behave bake her Fabulous Red Wine Biscotti.

We learned how to make well in the center of a bowl with flour, sugar, salt and baking soda.

We learned how the really great chefs of the world use just a few simple tools like a big old bowl, and a regular old soup spoon.

We learned that mothers have to lead by example.

We learned that daughters have to follow their mothers.

And we learned that Grandma is always right.

By the end of our cooking lesson, we realized we disagreed about the timing of the cookies.

Sophie and Grandma liked them more ‘well-done’. (23-25 minutes.)

Renata liked them more golden colored. (20-22 minutes).

Though we fought and fought, the end of the summer was like Grandma’s biscotti.


And drenched in wine.

Now THAT’S Italian!

Grandpas are awesome too.
