I always wanted to try biscotti, but every time someone else made it, it came out to be more like a soft cookie. I wanted that crispy texture. This was my first attempt. I have never had a more delicious and more perfect of a texture in a biscotti!! The orange zest was key. I was worried when splitting up the dough. It's sticky and not easy to form like a pizza dough would be. I honestly thought I did something wrong. I went ahead and continued thinking I had a disaster awaiting me. Instead I found the loaves perfect and easy to remove to cool, easier to cut and by the time I stuck them in for the final crisping, I knew I was on the right track. I dipped them in the melted chocolate on one flat side and scraped the top along the bowl to smoothe it out. Some I drizzled the chocolate, some I left plain and others I added sprinkles to the chocolate. They were ALL delicious! I plan to make these often.
