Easy way to make great tasting biscotti. No one will ever know you used a cake mix!

Top Review by DebS 2

I made this for the 3 Chefs game - the theme I used was "Simply Italian" and this recipe was truly simple to make! I never made biscotti before because I thought they sounded too tricky to make - but this recipe proved me wrong. These are very flavorful (I did use more orange zest) My DH - who is not a dessert lover - ate two of these! I used a baking stone rather than a cookie sheet and they turned out just right. I will make these again - just so I can impress my friends :)
