Cranberry Pinenut Biscotti with a white chocolate drizzle

I love to have a biscotti with my tea in the afternoon or even first thing in the morning. Also, one of my favorite cookies to send to a few special people in my life is biscotti .....just a little bit of JJ in a neat little package tied with a red bow! When it arrives, it is intact, no breakage, perfect for shipping!
