This is a Martha Stewart recipe. I absolutely adore any kind of biscotti. This is a real winner.

Finally, a biscotti recipe that really worked for me this holiday season! This biscotti is delicious with the right amount of crunch. DH said I should definitely make this one again. The only change I made was to flip and to bake the cut biscotti a second time for 10 minutes after step #13. This recipe makes huge pieces, so if I could figure out the right baking time, I might make two logs instead of a giant one. The dough was stiff and a bit sticky when rolling, so I was glad I used a non-stick baking mat.
