I dunno about this one. I had to blanch the almonds, then toast them and then start making this. Then, it was a super dry "dough" (can I even call it that?) that was hard to get to stick together - I even added an extra 1T of canola oil and liberally wet it with my hands and it was still problematic. Then when I pulled it out after baking round #1, sure enough it pretty much crumbled everywhere and ultimatel ended up more like a pile of crumbs than biscotti. The taste is good - but really, isn't this just a dried out chocolate chip cookie? - which is why I gave 2 stars, but the texture needs help, and for the amount of time this took I could have walked 3 mi. to the grocery store and bought some decent biscotti. For me, the effort was not worth the result; homemade biscotti isn't any better than what you'd get at a local coffee shop. I won't be making this again.
