My mother is a biscotti lover, so for her birthday this year I found this recipe and made them. They were a hit! I made them again for Mother's Day. Now I keep getting questioned when I'm making them again. I don't think she's going back to store bought. ;-) The one thing I changed the second time I made them was instead of 2 tsp vanilla extract, I used 1 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp almond extract, and 1/2 tsp anise extract. Going to experiment with dried blueberries, and cranberries, and other nuts eventually.
Made these biscotti today. They were flavorful, but the baking temperature 375 degrees, is too high. The ends of the loaves and the edges were very brown, nearly burned. Next time I'll bake the biscotti the way I've baked other biscotti recipes. Bake loaves at 350 for 30 minutes. Cool on rack for 10 minutes then cut into 1/2 inch slices with sharp knife. Place cut biscotti on the baking sheet and return to hot oven for another 15 minutes. Turn biscotti over. Turn off oven and place biscotti back into the oven until golden brown.
I love this recipe! It is so flavorful and have been asked to make it again and again!
Wonderful! Easy and very tasty! This recipe has gone into our must save and make every year section! To the reviewer who commented on the cooking temp: one should always adjust to their own oven and keep an eye on the baked goods. For the reviewer who asked about the Amaretto, it cannot be tasted in the dough. It enhances the taste of the cherries and that's about it. I do agree adding a little almond flavoring would be interesting to test. Thanks PJ's Kitchen for a wonderful recipe!
Truly delicious. Made these for Christmas gifts, and they got great reviews.
used pistachios, because i had a bunch of them, and i added about 4 oz. of chopped dark chocolate. i love that the dried cherries are left whole - it gives them a wonderful texture.
