Reviews for Double Chocolate Biscotti
"I followed the recipe, only using sliced almonds for the pecans. When it said to shape the dough I assumed it would be more like bread dough but it is very sticky like cookie dough. These taste really good but mine did not raise. They are probably about a third of the width of the pictured ones. I will make these again because I like the taste and see if they turn out correctly."
"yum! Although, I tweaked my recipe because I was looking for a hazelnut biscotti. I replaced the pecans with an equal amount of finely chopped hazelnuts, and used an 1/8 of a teaspoon of orange extract. It definitely needed to be dunked, so I think I over-baked them."
"These were fantastic and soooo easy to make. Everyone who tried one, loved it."
"Tried this a few years back, and it's become a regular in my annual holiday baking. Extremely easy to make, and a huge crowd pleaser. Tastes decadent, without the guilt!"
"A favorite with my family!"
