Cantuccini are hard cookies that you can find in many cafés in Italy served as a snack along tea or coffee. These cookies known as biscotti - which literally means twice cooked - originates from Tuscany.
Cantuccini are very easy to make - just shape the dough into a loaf and bake. Then slice the loaf with a sharp knife and bake the cookies again. It's during this step that cantuccini becomes crispy.
