    biscotti are really cantucci - no butter fat or oil should be used as they were made for dipping into drinks like vino santo or coffee...fats leave a nasty residue in the liquid!

    I've made this today. It tastes really good with good anise flavor. I've substituted the orange extract with fresh orange juice. I've found that the texture is quite friable. Do I do anything wrong? Thanks for the answer.

    This recipe got me for sure when I saw the anise seed. I love the anise flavor in an herbal bread I make this time of year so I will surely be making this recipe this weekend. To those who have not made biscotti try it and enjoy...............mykele
