I have previously done some recipes from Giada and never disappointed me. This recipe for biscotti was very good especially dipped in some chocolate.
Adapted from Foodnetwork.com

Stir the flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. 
Beat the eggs and sugar in another bowl until pale yellow and fluffy,about 3 minutes.
Add the orange and lemon zests to dry ingredients.Add the flour mixture to the eggs and sugar and beat just until blended
(the dough will be soft and sticky) let stand by 5 minutes.
Preheat oven to 180°c
(If you think is needed add a little flour to dough)
Using a spatula transfer the dough to the prepared baking oven  sheet , moisten your hands with water and shape the dough in two logs.
Bake until lightly brown about 35 minutes Cool
logs for 5 minutes.
Using a.serrated knife, cut the logs in diagonal slices,.
Arrange the biscottis cut side down on the baking sheet
Bake until the biscotti are pale and Golden about 20 minutes.
Let cool and tranfer to a rack and cool completely.
Melt the chocolate in the microwave srtirring every 20 seconds about 1 1/2 minutes total, if you want you can make to bain Marie too.
Dip 1 cut side of each biscotti into the melted chocolate.
Gently shake off the excess chocolate. Let cool about 35 minutes

Note:
The biscotti can be made ahead. Store them in an airtight container up to 4 days, or wrap them in foil and freeze in resealable plastic bags up to 3 weeks.
