great taste, but extremely crumbly, i couldnt cut through the biscotti without it crumbling, so i put it in the oven in crumbles and used it over ice cream!
These came out very nice. I made the full recipe, and put half of the dough in the freezer to make later. Thanks!
excellent. Had gingerbread biscotti at Starbucks. These are much much tastier. Errored by using 1 cup butter (made them a second time the same way because they were so good and also frosted them like starbucks. Thank you
