I enjoy baking Biscottis so my lady friend gave me this book, of course she enjoys eating them. But all the recipes that I have tried all come out very gooie and hard to work with to form logs. I have even tried putting the dough in the refrigerator for about a half hour before working it. Ok Marie what else can we do to correct this problem? Do I have to go back to my own recipe and just add your ingredients?
The ingredient amounts in these recipes are way off. The dough comes out very gooey and is unworkable. I ended up taking my favorite biscotti recipe and used it as a base for some of hers.
