These are the classic twice-baked Italian biscuits. They are hard and dry, which makes them perfect for dunking in coffee. They can also be served with tea or dessert wine.
family loved it. I now roll them out thicker so they become longer biscotti. - 17 Dec 2012
I couldn't get 6 x 25cm logs out of the dough. They were more like 10cm. I had to cook them for much longer on the second baking than the recipe. They are, however, delicious!!! - 30 Apr 2014
To combine the flour & eggs by hand is difficult, you want to add more liquid so i transferred the mixture to my Kenwood Chef & used the K Beater which did the job then I added the almonds by hand to the dough. I was able to get the 6 x 25cm logs. I have a Rayburn they took a little longer to cook and they were dried on the outside and soft in the inner. Personal taste; the next time i make them, I will reduce the number os almonds. My chief tasters loved them. - 15 Oct 2017
