I recently submitted a recipe for my father's biscotti. Here's my mom's recipe. Obviously, we spend a lot of time in our family baking and eating biscotti! It's been a staple in our family for over 30 years. Mom's Biscotti 1 stick butter 1/4 cup milk 1 Tbsp. shortening 2 cups chopped nuts 2 cups sugar 1 Tbsp. anise seed 6 eggs 1 tsp. anise extract 4 1/2 cups flour 1 tsp. vanilla 3 tsp. baking powder Cream butter, shortening, and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift flour with baking powder; add alternately with milk to first mixture. Mix in remaining ingredients. Add more flour if necessary- batter should not be too soft. Spread in a 11"x17"x1/2" cookie sheet. Bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from oven; cut into 1" wide strips of desired length. Turn on sides and return to oven to toast lightly. Makes a lot. Enjoy! Anita Killian amkillia@mit.edu

This is the second time I used this recipe. Compared to other biscotti recipes requiring you to make a loaf, this one is easy, using a baking sheet to shape. I suggest when toasting the pieces after cutting, I placed half of the pieces on a separate baking sheet. Also, by placing the pieces on their bottom side with space between each (now split between two sheets), you can toast in half the time. Also, I fold in half a bag of chocolate chips and half a bag of white chips just before putting into the baking sheet. The biscotti freezes really well.
