If you haven't made biscotti before, this is what the half-way mark looks like. It's basically a baked loaf of shortbread that is cooled and then thickly sliced and baked again . . .
This particular recipe and batch is cranberry orange, but there are so many things you could add to the base butter/sugar/flour recipe to customize and flavour any combination you want. I was thinking to add some ground almonds and maybe some other diced dried fruit, mango anyone? Or how about rum soaked raisins? Stay tuned.
I tried this same recipe also with spelt flour and although it tastes okay, it is a little more crumbly. Spelt doesn't have the same binding ability that wheat flour has, so if your okay with biscotti chunks, then go ahead and use spelt flour. It also didn't help that I took the loaf out of the oven too soon. The recipe says 'bake for 20-25 min, but I found that 30-35min worked best.
