delicious biscotti! after reading all the reviews, i modified the recipe slightly. i added ~1/2 C more flour, a little more sugar and baking powder, 1 t orange extract, and 2 T oil. it was so easy to make- i can't wait to make it again! next time though, i'd make them a little smaller, so we get more cookies.
This recipe would have gotten a much higher rating from me if it was accurate. It is clear, however, from the amount of flour, that it is not. One cup is barely enough to turn the one and a half eggs into a batter, much less a dough. I actually believe that this must be a typo, and that you need to use 2 cups. After adding an extra cup of flour, this recipe became a kneadable dough, and came out exactly as I would expect biscotti to come out, as a firm, dense cookie, and not-too-sweet taste. If I could, I'd mark four stars for taste, one star for inaccuracy.
Outstanding Biscotti, Peg! The orange/chocolate combination makes a party for your tastebuds! I love this recipe. I didn't change a thing, followed your instructions to the letter and came out with perfect tasting and perfect looking cookies.
The dough was way too wet to handle but I molded it into a log and baked it anyway. It turned out great! Next time I will add just a bit more orange zest. My fussy father couldn't get enough.
Not bad. Though, a warning: if you're planning on doubling (or tripling) this recipe, you'll need to add more flour -- until the dough becomes easy to handle. I didn't have almonds, used white chocolate chunks. Very orange-y.
everytime I make these, They turn out wonderfully! Don't over back the log in the oven for too long, or I find it will crumble easily when cut into pieces.
But the taste is amazing. Instead of dipping one whole side in chocolate, I have dipped an end in chocolate too (so that when dunked in coffee or hot chocolate) it tastes wonderful!!! I have also drizzled the chocolate over one side to give it a "professional" look like the ones in the stores.
Everytime I make these they go fast. They're perfect for bake sales, cookie exchanges, or just to have around the house with your cup-o-jo!
I was very pleased with these and they got good reviews from my friends. I did add 1/2 tsp of orange extract because I wanted to make sure you could taste the orange flavor, and it seemed just right. I also rolled them in sliced almonds after dipping them in chocolate for decoration.
Thanks for this great recipe. We like it best plain with just almonds and 1 tsp vanilla. The other change I made to the recipe is 1/2 tsp baking powder and no baking soda and it has a way better flavour. I also cut it thinner, about 1/2 inch slices on the diagonal. It lasts really well - I've even mailed it to my son in Serbia. He calls it "Mum's world famous biscotti."
