      Looking for a different appetizer for a holiday party, these immediately caught my attention. I made the dough as presented and changed the preparation a bit by slicing my biscotti about 1/4 to 3/8 inch thick. This gave me an extra crispy result that was part cornbread and part cracker. Served with a black bean salsa and guacamole they were a delicious and elegant alternative to the popular corn chip. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.

      Loved these, but we love corn muffins. I followed justcallmetoni's cue -- sliced them thin and served with our favorite salsa. Froze the rest so I would have them on hand. Thanks Syd for posting.
