  • Bake in the middle rack for 20-25 minutes or until until the top and sides of the biscotti turns light brown.
  • Remove from oven and let cool down for 10 minutes.

Note1: This solely depends on the size you like for your biscotti to be.
The original post was double this recipe but I decided to half the recipe this time. If you would like to make a big batch, just double EVERYTHING in the ingredients list including the baking powder.
