    A colorful red and green dotted biscotti.. I love it and I don't really like biscotti. My mother said to make her this if nothing else for Christmas!

      This is the first biscotti that I've ever made. It was excellent. I tried a serrated knive, and an electric knife, but what worked best was my Cutco butcher knife. I didn't "saw" I just pushed straight down. It worked perfectly. And, they ARE beautiful.

      Love them! Love them! Love them! I know they're Christmas Biscotti, but I'm Jewish and it's May and they're still good. =:) Thanks for the recipe!

      Wonderful biscotti! The texture of these is perfect and the recipe instructions and baking time are also perfect. I'm not a huge fan of cloves alone, but I can't fault the recipe for that. I'd omit the cloves next time or substitute for something I like better. I used dried cherries, cut in half, for the cranberries. Lovely biscotti!
