o Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.
o Mix ingredients and work into a medium soft dough.
o Take about a tablespoon of the dough and shape into a small golf-sized ball.
o Roll the dough ball in icing sugar.
o Place on a greased cookie sheet (or one lined with parchment paper) and flatten out the ball of dough a little.
o Repeat until all the dough is processed, making sure there is ample space between the biscotti as they will spread substantially.
o Bake in a 350 F degree oven until done -- about 20 minutes.
