I made this with almonds and I'm going to try pistachios next. It was EXCELLENT and the texture was perfect. I topped about half the batch with melted chocolate chips, which was also good. Due to lack of reading comprehension, I made a whole bunch of 1 inch logs and baked them, thinking it was a strange way to do biscotti... about halfway through I realized how dense I was and just laughed it off. I ended up with tons of little 2-bite biscottis, which were really rather cute! I may make them that way again!
