then you make the dough, refrigerate it for half hour and arrange them into 'flattish' logs. yes, 'flattish' was in the recipe
bake the loaves and let them cool. slice them up into 1" diagonal strips.
bake again, cut side up for 15 min's (we turned them at 15 and did 5 more on the other side) voila! biscotti with semi-sweet chips, dried cranberries & plenty of orange zest and into little bags w/red string for office gifts
