This is an interesting and delicious change from typical biscotti. Pistachio nuts and ground ginger combine with orange zest and almonds for a biscotti that's great for dunking, and that isn't too sweet. You can also try macadamia nuts instead of pistachios.
I made this recipe justa few days ago the flavor of these biscotti is wonderful however like so many other reviewers I too found that the logs flattened out so I remade them again last night by editing the recipe and was happy too see that the logs stayed standing I incresed the flour to 2 cups decresed the butter to 1/2 cup and the brown sugar to 3/4 cup added 1/2 tsp salt an extra 1/2 tsp ginger and backing powder and 2 whole eggs - 19 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
When I baked this recipe, the loaves flattened out and ran into each other. Too much butter? I continued the best I could, and it really still tastes great. - 28 Sep 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
As the picture shows, the two rolls do flatten out, but can be cut into "fingers." This recipe is delicious and was rated "wow" by my Italian cousin-in-law. - 09 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
