A treat with afternoon coffee, these double-baked cookies called biscotti, are crunchy and just right for dipping in a creamy latte. Keep a batch of these in an airtight container for unexpected visitors.

Review This Recipe
Awesome taste, but...
My biscotti dough was more like batter--could not shape it into logs. I am wondering if the flour quantity is correct.
These biscotti cookies are of the best I've ever tasted or made. Very impressive recipe, easy to follow and make. I will definitely make again.
Very tasty but the dough was quite slack. I will make again with 2 eggs instead of 3. That change will make this recipe much closer to other biscotti recipes I use. But they are delicious!
Time for a break
These were simpl wonderful, and for a change i used white chocolate chips, too. Both kinds of chips were really good...I keep these back for my morning coffee break at work. They really make my break much more pleasant...and sharing them with a good friend makes them all the better.
It was my first attempt to bake biscotti. These cookies are soooo good! Easy to make and very good with a cup of coffee. I baked them for my friends for Christmas, but I will have to make more, for my husband can't stop eating them! I drizzled white chocolate over the cookies for decoration.
I made it for Christmas gifts and I had to try them out............they are great and I believe everone else will think so also.
Love the recipe. Easy to do, yet looks like I am a Master Chef.
Fast and EASY!
This recipe is great. It's simply and easy. My friend think I'm a gourmet b/c I make biscotti. I add almonds sometimes instead of chocolate chips - just as good!
A great dessert
I made this 4 my mother and father for Christmas and they just loved it. It's hardly any work and it tastes great. It makes a wonderful dipper for coffee.
Easy but Elegant
This is really a great recipe that requires little effort and returns great results!
If you like biscotti this is excellent
I really like biscotti and was afraid to try and make it since I thought it was so hard. This is easy and very good. I will be doing this for Christmas presents this year.
