  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, whip eggs and sugar until light. Mix in the orange extract and oil. Combine the flour and baking powder; stir into the egg mixture along with the walnuts. Form dough into 4 logs and place them 3 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet; flatten slightly.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden and firm to the touch. Remove from the oven and cool completely. Remove to a cutting board and slice each log into 1 inch wide diagonal slices with a serrated knife. Return the slices to the baking sheet, cut side down.
  4. Return the slices to the oven and bake for an additional 5 to 10 minutes, until toasted.

My dad requested biscotti, so I quickly chose this recipe and presented the cookies as a Christmas gift (after sampling several myself with hot coffee!). I substituted vanilla extract for the or...

Very good Biscotti. I didn't have orange extract so used 1 tsp almond and 1 tsp vanilla. I added 1/2 C choco chips.

This is a good recipe but a bit bland. Next time I would add orange zest.

Good for dunking in coffee or hot chocolate. Alone they are not that great. If I were to make them again, I would use a different type of nut (pecans) and add some dried fruit or chocolate.

Everyone loved these. I used pecans and craisins and then left some plain, dipped some ends in chocolate and then drizzled some with chocolate. My loaves took 5 minutes longer to bake...i had t...
