Like others, I found that the batter was too dry. In fact, I could not make it stick together at all, and today is a very damp day. I looked up other biscotti recipes and they all contained butter, so I added 1/2 cup of butter, and zap! Wonderful! Everything worked as described and the family loves it!

The dough DEFINITELY was dry. I also think the baking time was too long...for my oven, at least. The recipe, overall was o.k...I think I will stick to my old one, though.
