Biscotti are baked twice for extra crunch, first as a log, then in slices. You can use other nuts and dried fruits in this recipe, such as hazelnuts and cherries, or almonds and apricots.

    I've made biscotti many times before, I thought it odd that this recipe asked for no butter at all. It was impossible to roll the logs as they were extremely crumbly. I added 4 TB softened butter as in my other recipes, problem solved. Has anybody had the same problem?

    Thanks so much for this wonderful receipe. Christmas biscotti with green whole pistachios and red halved cranberries (instead of raisins) were so delicious; colours were so bright. This biscotti will be one of my traditonal cookies for my tin boxes. Happy Holidays from my home in Istanbul, Turkey to all of you at the Martha Stewart. Becky Altinman

    I just got the recipe and made it with little change like I uased walnuts instead of pistachios, and dried cranberries instead of raisins, and it's is really very good. Thanks Martha.

    "American" biscotti is dry, hard, and almost ruptures when you finally can bite it. Sicilian biscotti always has yolks and butter (1/2 cp), what results is a fine textured cookie that is more toasted because of the twice baking. Dipping in wine or espresso is optional, not necessary. Really not idiotic...sorry MaryLouH

    Really easy to make! You can also switch the pistachos and rainsins for nuts, chocolate chips or anything you want!!!

    Most biscotti recipes have very little if any added fat (outside what is in the egg yolk(s), nuts or chocolate) ... I seriously do not get the previous comment about 'mistakenly used a stick of butter' when the recipe called for NONE! Amusing, but rather idiotic ... sorry gunnerhepp

    This was my first biscotti and it was delicious! It was very easy for a novice. I substituted cherries for the cranberries and they were delicious. Next time I'll try the cranberries. I mistakenly used a stick of butter and they still came out delicious.
