I made two batches of these, one as written, one without any almond extract, since no one in my family is crazy about almond extract. I also swapped the nuts and cranberries for chocolate chips, at my sister's request. This recipe is awesome! The biscotti came out exactly the way I hoped. I followed Suzanne's suggestion and covered the loaves with a dishtowel while hey cooled, and they did not crack on top at all. For the second batch, I formed one big rectangle on the cookie sheet, so that I could cut long cookies instead of small ones. The long ones look really pretty. I used a knife to cut them, then switched to a pizza cutter halfway through. The pizza cutter made for much prettier cookies. I'll definitely use a pizza cutter next time. I can't wait to make these again!
