1 1/2 teaspoons
1 1/3 cups
diced mixed candied fruit
WOW! I never made biscotti before, but everyone I gave this too loved it, and two even made it themselves after. I made it for a church Christmas bakesale and my husband wouldn't let me take more than 1/2. I like the fact that the pieces aren't huge, just about 4-5 inches long when the logs are sliced horizontally. The only changes I made were from earlier reviews, adding about a cup more flour, using almond instead of anise (didn't have anise), and using entire container of fruit (2 cups). Not only for Christmas around here!!
This is the worst biscotti recipe I have ever made. It is way too sweet, and there's no flavor to it.
I made these for Christmas this year based on the reviews I read. These Biscotti's were very nice. I made them as the recipe called and also with white chocolate along the bottom. I loved them either way. I brought some to work and they were a big hit with my co-workers also. The dried candy was a bit hard and chewy. Not sure why that happened or if anyone else had this problem. Thanks to others who told that the dough would be very sticky. I was prepared for that and therefore was able to work well with it with a little more flour. I used just enough to be easier to handle and tried to handle it as little as possible as not to dry them out.
Thank you for this recipe. I will make these again and again!
I HAVE USED THIS RECIPE AS MY STANDARD, HAVE MADE THIS EVERY OTHER WEEK FOR 2 YEARS IT IS GREAT WITH ALL KINDS OF ADDED STUFF - FIGS APPRICOTS WALNUTS, CRANBERRIES, ORANGES YOU NAME IT!
Very yummy! A subtle anise flavor and very festive with the candied fruit! Super easy to make-dough a little sticky though. Had to heavily flour work surface and hands....worth the effort!
There is a special place in Heaven for You Because you shared this Recipe with me.Thanks for a great Cookie. Second Batch I added 2 cups tiny pieces of candied fruit
I love these festive biscotti. Next time I will add a little more candied fruit (maybe about 2 cups).
