    Step 4

    Add the Grand Marnier, orange juice and eggs.

    Step 5

    Turn the mixer on medium speed and beat until well mixed.

    Step 6

    Add the flour, baking soda and salt to the mixture.

    Step 7

    Mix on low speed until everything is well combined.

    Step 8

    The mixture should look like this.

    Step 9

    Wet hands slightly so the mixture does not stick to hands. Take half of mixture and make a log and place on baking sheet (roughly 2 inches wide). Do the same with the remaining half of the mixture.

    Prepare a wire rack and place over baking sheet. Cut logs diagonally into 1/2 inch slices and place pieces with cut side facing down on the wire rack.

    Step 14

    Bake for 9 minutes. Take out of oven and flip the pieces over. Bake for another 9 minutes. Take out of oven and cool on wire rack.

    Step 15

    If you would like to decorate your biscotti with white chocolate, place white chocolate in a small metal bowl.

    Step 16

    Place metal rack over pot and turn on the stove to low heat. Place your bowl with the chocolates over the rack. Stir often until white chocolate has melted.

    Step 17

    Place cooled biscottis on parchment paper.

    Step 18

    Place the biscottis right next to each other. Drizzle and decorate over cooled biscottis.

    Step 19

    Then slowly pull each piece apart from one another like this.

    Step 20

    Repeat for all your biscotti pieces. Let white chocolate dry for one hour.
