Cantucci or Biscotti di Prato are crunchy almond cookies from Tuscany.
Biscotti literally means twice (bis) cooked (cotti), biscotti is also the generic term for cookies in Italian.
These almond cookies are very easy to make: you shape the dough into a log and bake it. Then slice the log with a sharp, serrated knife and bake the cookies again. It’s during this step that cantucci dry out and become crispy.
