I actually got it together and completed this month's challenge early! I'm glad I did; this recipe was easy, fairly quick and turned out to be quite tasty. I used a spicy chai tea and Cointreau for the orange liqueur (only the best for my biscotti). I think any tea would work really nicely with this recipe so I plan on experimenting with others.
I was a little nervous as I mixed up all the ingredients: The recipe said the mixture was dry and crumbly but it seemed excessively dry which made it kind of hard to shape in to the rolls.
They were very imperfect looking as they entered the oven for the first baking phase.After baking for 30 minutes and letting them cool, they cut up fairly easily and then went back in the oven for bake #2.Flipped them after ten minutes, baked another ten and voila: Chai Tea Biscotti! Super tasty-can't wait to enjoy with a nice cup of warm tea or cocoa (or my morning coffee),
