I cut this recipe out of the Medford Mail Tribune a couple of years ago. This is my 3rd Christmas of using this recipe and my family would go nuts if I didn't make at least four different kinds using this basic recipe. I vary the type of chocolate I use to dip one side of each Biscotti either white, milk or dark chocolate. I've substituted other flavors of extract for the vanilla also. This basic recipe is good but if you are a baker who likes to experiment with flavors THIS is the one to try that with!!. Toffee chips are a nice addition to the basic recipe, dipped in dark chocolate and sprinkle with chopped pecans, yummy!
