Some of the best biscotti in the county are made by Cathy Schauber of wholesaler Cathy’s Biscotti. Schauber, who found her passion for baking at the age of 9, makes them the old-fashioned way: hand rolled, hand cut, and with no artificial ingredients. The taste of Cathy’s Biscotti may not be quite what you’d find in Italy as Schauber uses more butter than the traditional recipes call for, so it’s more cookie-like than biscuit-like.
Among the 12 flavors offered are cranberry-chocolate-almond, gingerbread, cappuccino, coconut lime, orange almond, and dark chocolate chip.
Cathy’s Biscotti ($14/lb or $8 for a bag of six) are available at Chocolations in Mamaroneck, Dante’s Gourmet and Iron Tomato in White Plains, Mount Kisco Seafood, the Rye Country Store, Perks in Katonah, and the Tazza Cafés in Armonk, Millwood, and Somers.
