I finally made these lovely biscotti, very very good!! Be careful not to overcook the second baking, my first batch, half the recipe, were good but just a little too hard, baked the full 25 minutes, still good dunk'n with coffee,but the second half,I just baked for 17/18 minutes and they were perfect!! Enjoy your coffee with these lovely dunkers!!!
