floured hands form each piece of dough into a flattish log 12 inches long
and 2 inches wide, arrange the logs at least 3 inches apart on the sheet,
and brush them with the egg wash. Bake the logs in the middle of a

On a cutting board, cut the logs crosswise on the diagonal into 1/2 inch
thick slices, arrange the biscotti, cut sides down, on the baking sheet and
bake them, in the 300F oven for 15 minutes on each side. Transfer the
biscotti to racks to cool and store them in airtight containers. MAKES:
