Great Recipe! My Italian father loves these treats after dinner. He can't have nuts so I omitted those and added 1/4 cup chopped, candied ginger for a little extra kick. I have to make extra now so he can take some home.

Wonderful biscott, made just two changes I used two whole eggs instead of 1 egg and two egg whites and added about 1/2 t. of salt. Thanks again for the wonderful recipe.

What a delicious biscotti! I was already missing the tastes of Christmas, so I thought I would make a batch of these. I just loved them. I used dried cranberries and macadamia nuts, and it turned out wonderful. Thank you Barb!
