I had never made biscotti before, and decided to start with this recipe. So glad I did! I had no anise, and added half vanilla and half almond extract instead. I mixed it in my Kitchen Aid, and added some chopped dried cranberries at the end. I had no trouble with the dough since I kept my hands wet while I was handling it. I formed them into logs right on the parchment-lined cookie sheet, then patted them down to 1/2" thickness. They were done in 20 minutes, so I was glad I was keeping an eye on them. I followed another reviewer's suggestion, and cut them immediately with a pizza cutter....so quick and easy, and no crumbling! I turned down the oven to 325, then baked them again on each side for 6 minutes. The texture is just what I wanted, and they are delicious! I can't wait to try again using some other flavor combinations.
