Perfect chocolate biscotti! Followed the directions exactly (except I left out the nuts), and they came out wonderfully. Crunchy, flavorful, and just the right accompaniment to my morning coffee. People have different ovens and pans, and I'm willing to bet those who had problems with burning weren't using parchment. Greasing might be okay if you have the right pans for it (dark non-stick pans will burn just about anything), but parchment really is your friend here. I started out with 10 mins on each side for the second bake, and they were still a little soft, so I gave them another 10 mins standing upright. Perfect! Also, definitely DON'T use a serrated knife. You need a long, very sharp slicer, and use a gentle sawing motion. If you're using force with the knife, it needs sharpening. If you're trying to cut these with a dull knife, you might as well use a hammer instead, you'll get the same result.
