With the great crunchy characteristics of biscotti this is a great treat to have with a cup of coffee. I love the chocolate and almond combination.
I have been making this biscotti for 6 years. I give it away to family and friends at Christmas time. I just finished making a recipe for 40 cookies last night. I went to my local resaurant to get a quick dinner and mentioned that I had been baking all day and I did not feel like making dinner. I told them I make biscotti and cookies. The owner asked if I sell the biscotti and I told her no, I give it away to family and friends. She asked me to bring some in today and if shel liked it she want me to make her some for an up coming party. She called me back about 15 minutes and said she would pay me $50.00 if I made her two dozen. I gladly accepted her proposel and I will have them done tomorrow. Just goes to show this is an excellent recipe. By the way she is Italian from Italy. Everyone should be so lucky to make and share this recipe with everyone! Bon Apetit! - 18 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
There is something wrong with this recipe. I'm no biscotti idiot as I've made many times before, however, this recipe is much too dry to even form a loaf. I think butter was left out !! - 27 Oct 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Good recipe for those of us trying to eat healthy. Note that this recipe will be dry unless you add 2 tablespoos not teaspoons of whiskey, flavoring or another liquid. - 17 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
