    JanetB-KY's Note:

    I love Biscotti; they are great as gifts, great with my tea and satisfy sweets cravings without being wayyy over the top with calories and fat. This one is a good one; I personally use almonds as I've never cared for Hazelnuts.

      The taste of this biscotti was good. I did have some 'handling' problems. First, I would recommend either dividing the dough into 3 rolls, or at least putting each roll onto a separate cookie sheet, as these make large logs. Also, because these spread so much, cutting them into 1/2-inch slices is nearly impossible. Since my biscott spread to be about 6-7 inches wide, slicing into 1/2-inch slices would have left me with a pile of crumbs. I ended up slicing them much thicker, and still have problems with them falling apart. I think that smaller logs would have solved both of these problems. As a final note, these were so chocolatey, that I decided not to dip them in the melted chocolate.
