I've been making these for years. They're always a big hit. I hope the previous reviewers aren't leaving out the coffee liqueur. It adds flavor.

This biscotti was easy to make, and generally successful. However, the flavor was lacking. Might be improved with a drizzle of Kahlua icing. I'm not ready to give up yet-- has good potential...

The biscotti came out beautifully shaped--just like it should look. However the flavor is really non-existant, and I added lots of extra cocoa. Still can't taste any chocolately flavor.
