Someone asked about cracking - here's the secret for all biscotti. When you take them out of the oven the first time, cover with a damp towel while they cool. They'll slice perfeclty without crumbling.
This biscotti was just ok. I didn't find the flavor was all that great, and the texture wasn't the greatest either. But they weren't a complete flop - I've just made better ones before so this was a disappointment.
This was very easy to make. I used fresh orange juice in place of the liqueur and they were wonderful. I would cut back on the almonds a bit for my own personal taste next time.
I make this recipe all the time, it is so easy and tastes so good. I leave out the almonds though and use 2 teaspoons orange oil instead of the zest and liqueor. Then because of the oil I cook 10 minutes longer. And of course, because I love chocolate I dip these halfway in melted chocolate and cool on set on wax paper.
These are crispy and delicious. We love the orange flavor, so if I have orange oil available, I'll use 2-3t of the oil in place of the orange.In place of chopped toasted almonds, try toasted sliced almonds.I think it gives more of a nutty flavor than the small bits.
These are very good. I used orange juice in place of the liqueur and added a tsp of orange extract. I doubled the recipe. I reserved some of the almonds to sprinkle on the top of the loaves before baking. Next time I will cut back on the cinnamon to about half - personal preference. I formed the dough on the cookie sheet which was covered by foil - much easier to handle.
I made these and they were so good! I love these!! I made the recipe exactly and once they cooled I dipped them in white chocolate.. I will be making these again, Thanks!!
My mom cannot eat sugar so I made some major changes to the original recipe, plus I thought I'd add somethings of my own to it. Here's what I changed: 3/4 cups white sugar became: 3/4 cups splenda 1 orange zested became: 1 orange zested and juiced 2 tbs orange liquor became: 2 tbs dark rum I mixed everything the same, creamed the butter with the splenda and mixed the orange juice, zest, and rum in with the splenda, butter, and cinnamon. Otherwise I followed the directions exactly. I am quite pleased with the result, and my parents liked it a lot too. I thought this was a great recipe and I enjoyed playing around making it, thanks for sharing :)
