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 ; )

Very good. I was intimidated at first to make it, but not I am wondering why? It is so easy! I also had to bake it longer, but the flavor was outstanding!!

In an effort to keep with a healthier lifestyle, I subbed whole wheat flour and cut it back to just 2 cups. I also subbed the butter for 3 tbs of ground flaxseed, and cut the sugar back to 3/4 of a cup. The result was terrific! The biscotti was crisp with just a hint of sweetness (which is how I prefer it). And I don't feel bad about indulging a bit. =)

cool, this was my first time making biscotti. i always thought it was hard to make, but i tried your recipe out and it came out pretty good! i upped the cocoa powder to 1/2cup and used walnuts instead. the only thing is that mine seems pretty dense inside, not airy like biscotti i've had outside. not sure if it's because i didn't use enough baking powder, but i'll definitely try this recipe again :)

Really good and easy. Just needs to up the cocoa powder and possibly the sugar. Only mod I did was finely chop the almonds before adding, personal preference. Perfect Father's Day treat!

I've made this recipe 5-6 times now. I can't say how it rates to other biscotti recipes because this is the only one I've tried! I love these and so does everyone else who tries them.

The were fantastic! I have ruined other biscotti recipes, but these were so easy and turned out perfectly even with a 5 year old "helper". One note: Both my baking times were only 20 minutes each, not 30 or more like the recipe says - good thing I was keeping an eye on them! Other than that they are perfection, I am making these for Christmas gifts!

Yum, yum, yum! Needed a little more sweetness, I thought. And I cut them a little wide, so they were a little big going in. I drizzled with white almond bark (melted, of course), and that added to a beautiful presentation. Will make again, with added sugar, perhaps. #1 liked them with his milk.
