I was a little disappointed that the coffee flavor didn't come through a little stronger, but they were very good. I had some trouble with the serrated knife tearing up the cookies, so I used a sharp chopping knife and that worked a lot better. I'll be making these again, but I may use an extract or something to enhance the coffee flavor. I tried it a second time substituting cinnamon chips and they were also delicious. I got tons of compliments on both, and they disappeared fast. I guess the coffee not coming through doesn't matter. I also learned that if your cookies start losing their crunch, you can put them in the oven on low for 10 minutes or so and it will dry them back out.
Maybe it was just because my DH was helping me, but I did not have much luck with these. To be fair, it was my first time making biscotti, but the dough was very sticky, even after adding extra flour, it was unshapeable. It fell horribly after taking it out of the oven, they were so thin that they couldn't stand on the cut sides to toast. I will try to make them again sometime by myself. They do taste fine, but we certainly had issues.
ZWT4: I love the coffee/chocolate combination - what a wonderful treat to have with coffee!
great! i made these for ZWT4 and gave them to a friend and my mom took them to a dinner. my sister, a coffee addict, thought they were great too!
I love the coffee flavour in these biscottis. I used instant espresso powder. I reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup. It was my first time doing biscotti and it was easier than I thought. And I'll try many recipes of biscotti. Cause it's so expensive to bought but so easy to do. Thanks Annacia : ) made for zaar star game.
Wonderful Biscotti, and since my DB is diabetic I am always testing new diabetic versions of recipes. Thank you for posting. Benthe
what a delicious biscotti! I added like 3/4 cups chocolate chips (because my mother and i are chocoholics) and i used espresso granules! you dont even need words to describe how yummy they were - jus ton eletter : MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM :D
These made a great little snack to go with coffee on a beautiful Saturday morning. I am new to biscotti making, so it could have been me, but I had a little trouble with shaping the logs. My hands kept sticking to the batter even flour coated, so my logs were not the most uniform looking, LOL. Anyhow I enjoyed them! Thanks Annacia!
These came out nicely. My husband and daughter ate them happily with no complaints, even though I used the diabetic friendly ingredient suggestions. A bit drier than I typically would like my biscotti, but considering these are a diet recipe, these came out quite well.
After reading the other review, I decided to add the extra chocolate to mine too. I had found an espresso dark chocolate which complimented these perfectly. DH went nuts over them so I'm going to make another batch for Christmas. Thanks for posting! :D
