I didn't have orange or almond, but I used this recipe as a base. I added cranberries and vanilla instead. The biscotti was great.



Read the comments of others and have these suggestions... Decrease the flour to 2-1/2 to 3 cups (depending on the humidity since the flour will absorb moisture). The orange peel isn't optional if you want that flavor and to heighten the almond add 1/2 teaspoon almond extract. These turned out delicate when firts out of the oven but with the second baking they became a very nice biscotti.



This recipe is too dry. It has very little flavor and is very heavy. I will not use this recipe again.
