Baked biscotti for the first time and tried slicing it right out of the oven as directed before putting back in for baking the sides but it didn't cut well at all without falling apart. Also, the coarsely chopped almonds contributed to the tendency to crumble when sliced. What am I doing wrong? .

I've had that problem with biscotti that has nuts in it. The best solution I've found is a really good sharp bread knife, I still lose a few, but not as many.

I make them and don't cut and toast again until it cools. Cut diagonally with serrated blade knife, never had a problem.

I did use a serrated knife and cut diagonally so they must need to be cooler. Thanks!

I always slice mine immediately after taking from the oven the first time...cutting 1 inch slices. Never had a problem with it being too crumbly. Perhaps it's the recipe that needs tweaking. It should not be too dry when mixing.
