Just not my cup of tea. Thanks for sharing.
I made these with cardamon instead of cinnamon and they were so good, I couldn't keep myself away from them! I also added some slivered almonds for added flavor which was a great addition!
This biscotti is delightful. I made a wee mistake and added all of the cinnamon to the batter instead of reserving some for the topping. I just continued on and added more cinnamon and sugar on top at the end. It still tasted great. Although others stated that they did not bake for 50 minutes, I did and it was not too long in my oven. One thing I did find was the first loaf I tried to cut diagonally and they fell apart. The second loaf, I cut straight through and it did not crumble or fall apart. I sprinkled the sugar on one side, baked ten minutes, flipped and sprinkled the other side with sugar mixture, then baked for final ten minutes. Thx for sharing your recipe MarieAlice, I will definitely make this again.
