How to Store Leftovers
Leftovers should be stored in an airtight container for up to a week.
How to Freeze
Once completely cooled, wrap the leftovers in an airtight wrap (I like to use Glad Press N Seal) and then store in a freezer bag.
When you're ready to eat, remove the frozen cookies from the freezer and defrost in the fridge 24 hours before eating.
Recipe Tips and Variations
- Not a fan of nuts? Swap out the macadamia nuts all together or you could swap them for other mix ins like dried cranberries or walnuts.
- This recipe yields 12 cookies, but can easily be doubled or tripled if you're feeding a crowd!
- Dip the biscotti into a little melted chocolate (white or dark) for an extra chocolate-ly touch.
