    Noo's Note:

    These crisp, crunchy cookies are based on the classic Italian version. These contain no nuts and are a slightly softer than the original version, which makes them more child friendly (mine adore them!). Try them with your mid morning cup of coffee..

      I don't know why I've always been intimidated by biscotti recipes... But this, my first attempt, was really good! The orange flavor is wonderful and the texture is absolutely perfect - I think it must be the cornmeal (had no polenta on hand, but no matter as the cornmeal was just great). Unfortunately, ovens are dreadful in this country, so the bottoms burned on the first bake. But we managed to save the day by cutting off the burnt bottoms and then returning to the oven for the second bake. That's why the finished product looks a bit "short". LOL. They taste fantastic and we'll make them again and again!!! Made for Fall PAC 2012. Thanks, Noo!

      Great taste! First time making biscotti so I had a few mistakes.I used cornmeal, after I read a review I saw that I was supposed to actually use polenta (even if it says very clear in the recipe). Mine came out a bit too hard, so probably I baked it for to long. But those were all my mistakes. I actually liked the texture from the cornmeal. I'll make these again and pay more attention!

      This is one of three of Noo's biscuit and brownie recipes I've made to take to my brother's for our family Christmas, the others being Dark Chocolate Chip and Vanilla Cookies and Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies: all delicious. We all love orange biscotti, and this is a very fine recipe for them. My mother and I have enjoyed the two that we've sampled and I know that they are going to be a hit! Very easy to follow instructions. Thanks for sharing this super-easy and wonderfully flavoursome recipe, Noo!
