I just came across your instructable how this one evaded me for so long is unbelieveable! Instructables live on !
just some tips. try listing the ingredients in the order that they are going to appear in the recipe. also try putting some pics in every step so ppl can see what their biscotti's should look as they go. otherwise nice instructable and those biscottis look delicious!
in saudi arabia, i used to eat 3 1/3 foot biscotti for breakfast.
I like mine with a little orange and lemon zest thrown in. I also throw in some dried sweetened cranberries and slivered almonds or pistachios.
Biscotti rules so much.
I'm making it as we speak and it smells out of this world! The batter was awesome too! One question, when do you add the almond extract? I didn't add it on this batch. I added sliced almonds instead.
I add it with the sugar and butter after they have been creamed, the almond extract is mainly for smell.
man my mom made sum differnt recipe though but taste awsome
Really, I like this one because of its ease, the easiest I have ever done by far.
that sounds yummy!
