Crunchy and tasty, too! I followed the directions exactly, except I added 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, 'cause we do like things hot. These had a nice flavor, but I think I'll cut them a little thinner than 1/2" next time, as that should make them more tender to bite. Flavorings were good, not overpowering, but perhaps a little more oily than other biscottis I've eaten. I loved the idea of savory biscotti and will experiment with these. Evelyn, thanks for the recipe and good idea.
