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.
this was good! except it was VERY VERY DRY so I added another egg .. they came out tastey just kinda flat though
great recipe! i took a cue from a very similar recipe at marthastewart.com and increased the vanilla to 1.5 tsp. and added 1 t. lemon zest. also, i don't know if my eggs were too small, but the dough seemed too dry, so i added another egg to make the dough stick together. i think i should've added a little more time in the oven b/c it was a little doughy in the middle, but they still turned out great and hardened up nicely after cooling.
Thanks Barb Gertz!. I have made it many times, I have tryed many versions of it with whole weath. It is delicious and healthy, no oil, not butter, no margarine, not shortening, no lard....I love it.
I did use cranberries and the cooking time was right on. This recipe does have to be kneaded. These are very generous with nuts and cranberries. Crunchy and Chewy Good! Thanks Barb!
