My son came over and stuck his hand in the cookie jar, took one bite and said, GREAT cookie mom! Tastes like biscotti! I thought they had a biscotti taste an texture as well. I used a fully packed Tbsp. of orange zest along with 1 1/2 tsp. orange flavoring, omitted the walnuts and added about a cup of crasins with only a cup of white chocolate chips. I used only a scant 1/2 cup of white and a scant 1/2 cup of brown sugar and liked that these cookies were not overly sweet. I did also add about a 1/4 cup more flour to make the dough the consistency of chocolate chip cookies. And instead of 3/4 tsp. baking soda, I added 1/2 tsp. baking soda and 1/4 tsp. baking powder. The cookies didn't spread much so I flattened them out "slighlty". I made nice lage cookies and baked them for 15 minutes. They were not at all dry, but had a biscotti texture and taste to them. They were gone in a day and I am now making another batch. My son asked me to give the recipe to his wife, so I went out and bought her a citrus zester and attached the recipe. Great gift! Thanks for the recipe!
