This is NOT a good recipe, I'm sorry to say. It would appear that the individual who posted it didn't test it. The instructions don't indicate that you should first cream the butter before add...

An absolutely incredibly flavored biscotti! I had to make a second batch because the first batch disappeared the first day!

I found the dough VERY hard to work with. It was so dry in fact, that instead of playing with it further I just threw it out.

Dough is very dry, difficult to work with. Subsequent cookie is heavy and floury. I love the idea of the cookie and am going to try playing with the recipe a bit.
