      Great recipe but I will make some minor alterations in the cooking temperature and times next time I fix it. The ingredients don't need to be altered, in my opinion, just the cooking directions. I made two batches of biscotti, this recipe first and then a batch of lemon-ginger biscotti from the cookbook that came with my food processor. I followed the directions exactly on both batches and this batch was overcooked for the first baking which made it to dry and it was very crumbly when i was trying to cut it before the second baking. The other recipe didn't cook quite as long and at a lower temperature for the first baking and turned out beautiful--it looked like a professional had made it. The alterations I will make are as follows: For the first baking bake at 325 degrees for 22 minutes. Remove from the oven cool only for 10 minutes and then cut at 1/2" intervals (this made it easier to cut and each biscotti was perfectly shaped). Arrange slices on the baking sheet (cut sides exposed) and bake for 20 to 25 minutes until they begin to turn golden and crispy. I turned them once through that baking even though the recipe didn't require it. Enjoy!!!

      This is the first and only biscotti recipe I've ever tried and they are so good, I don't want to try any others. Be sure and use butter and not margarine, tastes so much better. I also put sliced almonds in the dough before mixing, they break up in the dough and make it prettier. I've given these to friends and family and everyone loves them.

      It's good half baked--I know that's not really biscotti, but I don't like the idea of dipping stuff into my drinks. I just wanted something that wasn't a brownie and wasn't a cookie but was nice and chocolaty. This did the trick (at 350 as some reviewers suggested). I used chocolate almond bark instead of white chocolate [which I don't like and didn't have]. Turned out nice, but I'll want more chocolate in it next time.
