Biscotti Ready To Bake

Place onto a large greased oven tray

Bake till risen and ‘half’ cooked. This should take 50 minutes at 160 degrees Remove, cool slightly and slice with a bread knife into biscotti. Do not cool completely before slicing as the logs will become too brittle and crumble – lay the pieces onto 2 oven trays lined with greaseproof paper and bake again at 130 degrees till dried – 1 hour to 1 hour 20 mins
