    My first time making Biscotti. I originally looked up an original Biscotti recipe and saw that you bake it for 25-30 minutes. Then after cooled to cut and place on its side and bake an additional 6-10 minutes on each side. Your recipe says to bake for about 50 minutes. (I accidentally put timer on for about 20 minutes (remembering the first recipe I viewed),I looked again at recipe and was like oh my, the time is different, so I changed time to 50 minutes.) The Biscotti was way too hard to cut and it broke in a lot of pieces and burned a little. Also, I chose to use the egg white left over from the egg yolk, instead of another whole egg. I like that it gave a nice shine. I did like the taste and will try to make again doing first bake at about 25-30 minutes; cool; cut into pieces and bake again for the additional time. I do hope the next time it works...

    I tweaked because in recipes I also look at how to try and not be wasteful. Didn't want to use another whole egg, when I still had egg white available.
