"Toasted almond and lemon zest biscotti for any occasion. Try these variations: Use 1/2 teaspoon of either vanilla or anise extract instead of the almond extract; substitute chopped filberts for almonds; toss in half a cup of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips." — Rosina

The BEST biscotti ever....this was the third biscotti recipe I tried and by far the best!! I made a batch and brought them to work.....the girls loved them and asked for the recipe!! Easy and delicious, a definate keeper.
Too Crumbly! They tasted ok, but when I went to slice them they all fell apart. I maybe got 8 good looking ones out of the whole batch. These were meant to be gifts so I will have to look for another recipe to use. I tryed both a serrated knife and a steak knife. Surprisingly the steak knife worked better.
DELICIOUS!! Texture was good too. Extract can be replaced with fiore de sicilia (orange flower water and vanilla) for another traditional italian flavor. I made 2 batches one with anise and one with the orange flavor. Everyone was happy!
I thought I would come back again to rate. I have made these Biscotti since I first found this recipe. I just got done making a double batch. I didn't have any almonds so I sub dried cranberries, didn't have lemon so I used orange zest. These are the best and everyone whose tried them rave about this recipe. Thanks again Rosina.
Good basic recipe. It needed more flour though to keep the dough from being too sticky. I used margarine instead of butter. Also, I scored the dough first, AND I cut it before cooling it and I had little to no crumbling--but use a single-motion when cutting through, or you may pull out dough from the middle.
I never dreeamed biscotti could be so easy. My 14 month old LOVES biscotti. I subsituted pistachio's for the Almonds. They were excellent!
I couldn't believe I made such a delicious biscotti- thanks for this recipe!!
Great biscotti. I used orange zest instead of lemon. Another addition to the Christmas gift baskets this year. This and the Cappuccino in a Jar recipe are a great hostess gift for all those holiday parties!
