Perfect! This recipe is perfect for customizing. To add extracts/nuts/anise seeds etc: Cream butter and sugar, add eggs. Next, add zest, extracts or liquors and mix until well blended. (If you add too much extract, your mixture may curdle. Don't worry! Just add the flour mixture quickly.) Add dry ingredients and mix until just blended. Add anything chunky (choc. chips, nuts, dried fruit etc). I made plain ones (delicious!) and a second batch with 2 tsp lemon zest, 3/4c dried cranberries, 3/4c almonds 1 1/2 tsp vanilla, and 1/2tsp anise seed. Drizzle with a little white chocolate. Not sure why, but the customized recipe spread a little more than the plain version, so leave extra room on your baking sheets!
The lemon/cranberry version was some of the best biscotti I've ever had. Thank you for sharing.
