Biscotti are twice-baked in the oven to create a dry and crunchy biscuit. This recipe gives you the option of spicing them up with star anise and walnuts.
This cookie recipe is FANTASTIC!! Very easy to make (my 9yr.old helped me). On my very first try they turned out perfect.(I omitted the walnuts,preferring only the anise). My Husband is impressed, my Parents were stunned and they were a hit at the dinner party I attended. I am Italian and I come from a family of Bakery owners and these cookies impressed them. Thank-you for submitting this recipe and I always make mention as to where and whom this recipe originated from. I highly recommend this recipe for its simplicity and its deliciousness!!

I wanted to make the perfect Biscotti recipe for Christmas gifts this year. I printed out 15 different ones from this site and tried them all. This recipe was the winner "hands down" with my family and friends. Thank you Michelle for sharing your Grandmother's recipe with us all. - 25 Nov 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Delicious recipe! Just make sure the logs are not too thick or they not cook in the middle. - 09 Feb 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
