Very Nice!!!!This being my first try at making biscotti,I chose this recipe as it needed only one egg..So even if it went wrong ,i felt that it would be justified that i did not waste my ingredients...But The biscotti were really nice..My husband thought it had the professional touch....It was easy to prepare and really tasted nice..But they did lack something..I couldnt put my finger to it..thats why the 4 stars... I will definitely make this again to see how they turn out the second time....Thank you for a easy and lovely recipe..!!!

- Transfer to the prepared cookie sheet Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden.
- Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes, or until firm Transfer to a cutting board.
- Using a serrated bread knife, cut the log into slices about 1/2 inch thick and arrange them on the cookie sheet.
