When Sookie offers Lorelai a treat and instructs her to dunk it in her coffee, she gives her a biscotto, without identifying it.

Biscotti are Italian almond biscuits (cookies) that are twice-baked, and very crisp and crunchy. Although biscotti’s origins go back to ancient Rome, they were revived in the Tuscan city of Prato in the 19th century, now seen as the home of modern biscotti. In Italy they are usually dunked in a dessert wine at the end of a meal, but outside Italy dunking them in coffee or tea is more usual.
