9 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
¾ cup raisins or currants soaked in 2 tablespoons water or rum
¾ cup toasted walnuts or hazelnuts, chopped into large pieces
Grated zest of one lemon

Beat eggs, lemon zest, vanilla and water into dry ingredients.

Divide dough into 3 parts.  Place dough on parchment paper or silpat pad on sheet pan.   Shape each piece into long, round top flattened log, 2 ½" by 8” by 1”.  Bake about 20 min or until dough is a light gold.  Let cool 5 minutes.

Cut each log diagonally into ¾ inch slices. Place the slices, cut side down onto baking sheet.  Bake 5 minutes, turn them over and bake 5 minutes longer, until firm.   Transfer to a rack and cool completely.  Keep in tightly covered tin.

Experiment with different dried fruits and nuts, apricots, dried cherries, cranberries....cashews, almonds, pistachios, etc.

Turned out better than anticipated. It definitely needed more baking time after cutting the biscottis, like 20 min on each side. I think that using so much cornmeal makes the biscottis very breakable, I would use less and use corn flour. Other taste is great, my friend even said: "they are better than the real ones (ie, with wheat flour)" and I think that it is true too.

Hello
The directions leave out the sugar, the cornstarch. The taste is there but poor directions or am I missing something. Please fix recipe or explain.
