  • 4 Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on cookie sheet 15 minutes.
  • 5 Cut crosswise into 1/2-inch slices. Place cut sides down on cookie sheet. Bake about 15 minutes, turning once, until crisp and light brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. Cool completely on wire rack.

Expert Tips

Put a lid on it! Biscotti best retains its crispness when stored in a tightly covered container.

Instead of melting 2 ounces of semisweet chocolate, melt 1 ounce of semisweet and 1 ounce of white chocolate. Dip cookies in a bit of each, then swirl chocolate coatings with a toothpick for a marbled design.
