    Lisa Pizza's Note:

    There's nothing better than a hot cup of joe and a crispy biscotti. Unless, of course, you're enjoying them at a cafe in Italy! :) I was always intimidated to make these, but found them to be a sinch to make and can't wait to try them again.

      I offered to make cookies for someone and they mentioned biscotti - I was like - excuse me???!!!! So, I bravely came out here searching for a recipe and this is the one that I ended up selecting and I'm glad that I did. They are very tasty and crunchy and they were very easy to make. Now - to see if I can ship them with out destroying them and all will be perfect. Thanks for making my first experience with biscotti such a positive one! :)

      These are the best! I made them last weekend and gave a few away around the department. They were a huge hit--perfect flavoring, especially with the toasted almonds and the extract, and perfect texture. Thanks so much--I'll make these a lot!!!

      Lisa Pizza, this biscotti was very good. What I did was when you put them in to bake the second time on the side I added 10 minutes, making it 25 minutes . I also turned them over and baked another 25 minutes on the other side. Came out crispy the way biscotti should be. Thanks so much for this recipe ; )
