I made biscotti using this recipe two days in a row. At my first trial (and it's my first time ever to make any biscotti), I pretty much followed the recipe except that I left out the almonds as I didn't have any and used orange vodka instead of whisky. The dough came out really dry even as I kept wetting my hands. The biscotti came out tasting alright but didn't look that great. Also, I found that there were way too many chocoloate chips.
Determined to make some better biscotti, I adjusted the recipe by:
- using 3 eggs instead of 2
- cutting the amount of choc chips in half
- using sliced almonds
- adding some orange zest
The end result is a batch of much better looking biscotti with just the right amount of sweetness. I still find that it doesn't have the "smooth" look as most of the store-available biscotti. I think it's because there's no butter/oil used at all. However, I think it's a reasonable tradeoff of keeping this as a healthy snack.
