I have made lots of biscotti in the past, but these did not rise up like the photo. Rather, the very sticky dough spread as it cooked. I had brand new baking soda and powder. Maybe I didn't knead it enough and with enough flour. It is very sticky, so if you don't think you have enough flour for that step, add more, and then some more! I still recommend trying these because they do taste really good! I made a double batch and toasteded my sweetened coconut. I also substituted one quarter of the vanilla with coconut extract. You can see many more reviews and substitution ideas on Cooking Light's website.
Good Glutens, this is a sticky dough! I had a minor problems with the baking time as it took almost twice the time prescribed, but nothing I couldn't deal with. Incredibly delicious! Made for Sweet Traditions Tag.
