5 stars for taste! I made these as a gift for my DIL, who loves biscotti. I had a challenge forming them and added more flour. They didn't look so great, but tasted wonderful. I added some craisins to make them more Christmasy! Thanks!

These biscotti are great! I've made them a few times, replacing the butter with more oil and the zest with a little lemon extract. I prefer making two logs for smaller cookies, rolling them out with more flour to make them easier to handle.

This is beyond excellent. I didn't have a "log"pan so I tried a loaf pan...big mistake. I took it out, then kind of re-shaped it and cooked it again on a cookie sheet. Baking times were a lot longer and I think might be longer than recipe states anyway. However, finished product was so worth it. I used raw pistachios, unsalted and unroasted. Seriously a 5 star recipe.

This is a great recipe! The biscotti turned out beautifully. I made 2 small logs instead of one big one so that I could get more cookies. I've been making them weekly and have enjoyed dunking them in my coffee, tea, and milk. Thanks for posting.

Oh my goodness, this was an excellent recipe. I couldn't find shelled pistachios so I bought ones in the shells and shelled them. They worked just fine. I took it to work and everybody drooled over it. Thanks for a great recipe.

My first attempt and everyone loved it. I dipped mine in melted chocolate on one side, once completely cooled. I also used 1/2 cup pistachios and 1/2 cup sliced almonds.

Wow! I recently had a pistachio biscotti at a local coffee house and loved it. I came to the zaar to find a recipe and thought that I'd start here. No need to look further! Clear Directions and a product that is superior to most other biscotti that I've had. Pefect amount of pistachios and sugar...and the lemon zest really rounds it out. Thanks!!
