  7. Using a serrated knife, slice the loaves diagonally into 1-inch slices. Return the slices to the baking sheet, placing them on their sides.
  8. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes on each side, or until dry. Cool completely and store in an airtight container.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I decrease the amount of sugar used in this biscotti recipe?

If you prefer your biscotti to be less sweet than most, you can half the sugar used in this recipe. However, we do not advise removing the sugar entirely as the unsweetened cocoa powder is very bitter. Sugar balances this out and brings out the chocolaty taste we all know and love.
