    Always wondered about the name here -- Where's a recipe for longbread, anyway! Wherever the one is found, this particular recipe was located in the Taste of Home's Chocolate Lover's Cookbook, Vol 2, 2003!

      Delightful! Intense but not overly sweet! I made with the higher amount of cocoa, and I added walnuts. I formed into one block, didn't cut into bars before cooking, and purposely cooked the block longer (22-25 minutes) and at a lower temperature (325 degrees) in hopes of getting more of a dryer biscotti texture. Even then, they were nicely soft, never got too hard.

      These were just okay for me. On their own they are nice but I felt like they needed an accompaniment - like ice cream or some frosting for me to like them more and I was right, I enjoyed it much more with ice cream. Thanks for posting.

      I was looking for a small batch cookie recipe to prepare for a tiny group of chocolate fanatics. This fit the bill on two counts and the results were just delicious. I also finely chopped dried cherries and added them to half the batch. This made it harder to cut the strips but the taste was delicious. Thanks!
