  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar. Blend in eggs and anise extract. Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into the egg mixture. Finally, stir in the candied fruit. Refrigerate dough for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Divide dough into 4 equal portions. Roll each portion into a log about 12 inches long. Place 2 logs per cookie sheet. Press down slightly and bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes.
  3. Remove from the oven and let cool on the pans for about 5 minutes. Slice diagonally into 1/2 inch thick slices. Place the slices cut side down on the baking sheet and return to the oven for another 16 to 18 minutes, or until lightly toasted. Cool on racks and store in airtight containers.

This is the worst biscotti recipe I have ever made. It is way too sweet, and there's no flavor to it.

I HAVE USED THIS RECIPE AS MY STANDARD, HAVE MADE THIS EVERY OTHER WEEK FOR 2 YEARS IT IS GREAT WITH ALL KINDS OF ADDED STUFF - FIGS APPRICOTS WALNUTS, CRANBERRIES, ORANGES YOU NAME IT!

Very yummy! A subtle anise flavor and very festive with the candied fruit! Super easy to make-dough a little sticky though. Had to heavily flour work surface and hands....worth the effort!

There is a special place in Heaven for You Because you shared this Recipe with me.Thanks for a great Cookie. Second Batch I added 2 cups tiny pieces of candied fruit

I love these festive biscotti. Next time I will add a little more candied fruit (maybe about 2 cups).

This is the worst biscotti recipe I have ever made. It is way too sweet, and there's no flavor to it.

I am a big fan of biscotti and was delighted to try this recipe. It is perfect for the holidays! It is colorful and very tasty! Great Recipe!!!

The Best alternative to that fruitcake that gets passed around year to year. The kids ate it, the in-laws ate it, and even the husband asked for more!!! We call it Christmas Biscotti.
