I added walnuts and aniseeds, both roasted and chopped to the final dough. I made half the recipe, 20 servings and found that 25 minutes of initial baking and 25 minutes of baking the slices - did a wonderful job. The biscotti is extra crisp and aromatic. Thanks. Super recipe, i highly recommend it.

Excellent biscotti recipe. Variation: Double Chocolate Biscotti Use above recipe, except: Eliminate cinnamon in step 2. Eliminate steps 16 and 19. Add: 1/3 cup cocoa powder and 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate bits in step 2. Chocolate lovers delight
