I love the biscotti from Maida Heatter’s Brand-new Book of Great Cookies. I have made all below with great success, I have made as written, and also had really good luck freezing loaves (unbaked) and then baking later as I need, this is great for the holidays as it allows you to do a ton of prep work in advance! Her directions are a bit lengthy, but when I was a new bisoctti baker it was really helpful and I have used her method when coming across other biscotti recipies.
p.17 Barbar's Milk Chocolate Biscotti- this uses a 7oz Hershey's Symphony Bar, which I think is down to 5oz?
p.20 Gingerful Biscotti - really gingery but really good
p>23 Chocolate chipa nd Almond Biscotti
If the Swedish hardtack recipe is included (whole wheat flour w buttermilk) it's a very good recipe, have made it a kajillion times.
