Your aunt Mary shared this recipe with me about 10 years ago. I have had so much fun making biscotti! I learned that they require a lot more patience than a traditional cookie. You can make a double batch and bake all at once in the oven since they get eaten very quickly. I added these to my christmas gift giving cookies. I have also learned how to alter this perfect recipe and change it up. You can change the extract used, substitute dried fruit like dried cranberries, use orange peel instead of lemon, You can also add booze like Sambuca or baileys in place of the extract. Just add more flour if the dough does not come together in a ball. Your Canadian relatives now ask me to make the variations but I always think of Mary and her kindness in sharing this recipe. It made me feel like a true part of the family. Biscotti recipes are sacred for Italians.
