These were the first biscotti I have ever made. They turned out pretty well, considering the simplicity of the recipe and absence of fat. I used 2 whole jumbo eggs, brown sugar, unbleached flour, ground poppy seeds, and freshly squeezed lemon juice instead of lemon extract. Also added a bit of almond extract. I sprayed the wax paper with a little oil to prevent sticking. The recipe doesn't specify dimensions of the logs, so I improvised and made mine about 3" wide and 10-12" long. Baked them for 25 mins, not 30 to prevent burning, and for another 5-7 mins once sliced. The lemon flavor is very faint but, overall, the biscotti are crunchy and enjoyable. However, if you're looking for that rich, buttery flavor many "authentic" biscotti have, you might be disappointed.
