    i over cooked mine because I didn't fully follow the instructions and now it is pretty hard.
    but the next lot i cooked for a normal amount of time and it was much better.
    Will definitely make again. Thanks

    Delicious biscotti!!!!
    I did add some extra flour as I found the mixture to be very wet and didn't come to a ball in the bowl. But what a delicious biscotti!

    The flavour of these bickies is amazing!!  I didn't have any pistachios so just used 100g of roasted blanched almonds....lovely!  I had to cook mine a lot longer than 20mins to dry them out although i think i have over cooked them now as they are extremely crunchy
