My husband and I love Biscotti and have been buying them at our local bakery for $10 per pound. Now that I'm retired I thought why not save some money and make them myself. When I searched for Biscotti and this recipe came up I thought it looked too easy to be any good but I'd try it. I followed the recipe exactly except I mixed in the nuts and bits by hand. That little bit of kneading helped to smooth out the batter. The final consistency reminded me of play dough. The cookies were fantastic, every bit as good as the ones from the bakery. My husband likes them better. I’ve been thinking of variations since the basic recipe of cake mix, flour, butter and eggs could be used with any flavor cake mix and combination of flavorings, nuts and dried fruits. The important thing is to make sure that the dough is very dense and that the cookies are completely cooled before you store them. Some variations: German chocolate cake with walnuts and coconut Yellow cake with dried cranberries and pecans Red velvet cake with white chocolate bits German chocolate cake with chopped English toffee
