Try this link to a different flavor biscotti recipe ... it gives a nice visual step by step. I apologize in advance for the crude link.

Thanks for your feedback, I greatly appreciate it.
My biscotti recipe says to divide the dough in half and make two logs out of it. I take the lump of dough and gently press it with my hands, to flatten and spread it out, till it's 12-14 inches long, 4 inches wide and 1/2-inch to 1-inch tall, tapering from the center to the sides. HTH.

Thanks, GG, I was trying to make some biscotti yesterday and take pictures of my steps, but I didn't get there.

Your way is very similar to how I learned. SueBear, just keep working it with your hands - it won't hurt the dough to keep working it until you get it the shape you want. And depending on your recipe size, the two logs are easier to shape than one and the pieces are just the right size.

Have fun and let us know how your next batch turns out!
