These were really good but as others suggested, I upped the anise content and I would do even more the next time. I made only a single loaf and upped the extract to just over a tsp and 2 Tbs anise seed. I think next time I'll add another half tablespoon of seed and a few more splashes of extract. Also used 5% cream for the liquid per Sweetooth instead of brandy and it worked great. I am brand new to biscotti as of this recipe and if you are too MAKE SURE YOUR LOAVES ARE FLAT. Mine was too tall, had to bake it too long (so the ends dried up)and when I went to cut, the middle still wasn't completely baked through so the tops of my cookies crumbled. This is why I do test batches :)
