These are good - I've made them twice now. I didn't use foil, just sprayed 2 cookie sheets, and had no problem with moving them off and on. Also I added about 1/4 c of sugar to sweeten them up the second time around. The directions were a bit iffy, not sure about butter - I creamed it and then added the eggs and vanilla. Thanks for a nice recipe.
Making biscotti is demanding, but so worth it. These were my first attempt at biscotti and they were delicious! I baked them for about 40 minutes at 350Â°, which I think resulted in them being too dry & very hard (if there's such a thing as too dry or too hard biscotti). I made two changes to this recipe: 3/4 cup caster sugar added to the dry ingredients, and a total of 10 tablespoons butter which I mixed with the eggs and vanilla. I have a suggestion for using white chocolate. If using bar-formed chocolate, then chop chunks large enough to be seen & tasted. I ended up chopping too finely, and the expensive white chocolate wasn't even seen when the biscuits were done baking. Thanks for this recipe. It's a keeper!
