We wanted a great biscotti recipe for crunchy—but not tooth-cracking—biscuits, full of flavor and easy to make. Our favorite combination of ingredients included whole eggs with no additional yolks or butter, because this resulted in the truest delivery—lean and direct—of the flavors in these cookies. (Cookies made with only whites were harder than hard.) We also found that biscotti recipes made with whole eggs got even better with time; they tasted great and remained very crisp after a week and, when stored properly (in an airtight container), they kept for a month.

The addition of a small amount of butter produces a richer, more cookie-like texture. Although they will keep at least two weeks in an airtight container, these biscotti are especially good when eaten the same day they are baked. A combination of almonds and hazelnuts works very well, too.
