These are very good. Not too sweet, which is how I like biscotti. I used agave nectar instead of fructose. I am going to make again at Christmas time and use peppermint instead of lemon. There are a number of flavor combinations I think would work in these. WARNING: As stated, they burn easily during the broiling process. Therefore no photo :( They tasted good, but didn't look as good as Annacia's. I will watch them more carefully next time!

These cookies are wonderful. The lemon flavor is a delight and they look great with the pattern of doughs. I made a 1/2 recipe and used Splenda. I ran into a couple issues, the first was that the dough was far to soft and sticky to roll with the given amount of flour (3/4 cup) and added more by tbs until I could work with it to the amount of 1/4 cup. The second thing is that the top layer of the cookie kept breaking off when sliced. I might have made it too thin as the recipe asked for it to be 3/4" and it was no where near that. They are very simple and quick to make up and assemble and are fun to make. I upped the cinnamon to 1/2 a tsp and used the 1/4 cup of egg sub. The cookies are sweet enough for me but I think some others would like them sweeter.
