I LIKE how low fat this recipe is! It's not as orange flavored as I had hoped, instead it's more of a suble orange taste. The texture is nice and crunchy. I skipped the glaze and just threw in a few chocolate chips, which worked well. I also substituted hazelnuts with pecans. This is a good recipe.

This made very good, crunchy crisp biscotti, perfect with coffee. They are not real sweet cookies, which is how I prefer them. Because of the limits of my oven, I baked the biscotti in two 9-inch long loaf pans, which I had greased and floured. The dough was pretty sticky, but since I didn't attempt to form it there was no problem. My short loaves baked in the 30 minutes given, I then sliced them and baked again as the recipe states. My yield was 35 biscotti after trimming the ends of the loaves. I haven't used the chocolate, and probably would reduce the amount if I did. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
