Recipe by Mrs Goodall
I don't like biscotti in general, they are too hard and I don't dunk anything in milk or coffee, just not my thing...my good friend and past landlady Terry made these biscotti and I only tried them to make her happy. Oh my god! They were so good and NOT hard, crisp but tender! If biscotti is not your thing, give these a try, you might change your mind!

Awesome recipe! Best biscotti I have ever made. I made three batches today, one was pistacio, one was apricot and pistacio and one was lemon walnut. I also dipped the tips in chocolate and white chocolate for the lemon walnut. Super delicious. You can add anything to this great recipe. I am wondering if the unbleached flour makes the difference from other recipes. Try it and treat yourself and give as gifts.
