    Because this recipe does not have butter, it will keep in an air tight container for a month.

    Thoughts for next time: I think the slices were a bit thick as they didn't completely dry into hard biscotti. The thin bits at the end did. As well as thinner slices, maybe patting the loaf thinner may help
