I received this recipe from my friend in college. She was Italian, and always shared great recipes with me. This is a great recipe for kids, they love the oatmeal cookie taste of this biscotti recipe.

- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 3⁄4 cup oats
- 2 tablespoons yellow cornmeal
- 1 teaspoon baking powder

- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 1⁄4 cup butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3⁄4 cup walnuts
- Heat oven to 350°F.
- Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl.

Biscotti always grabs my attention, & this recipe was no different ~ I had to make it! Wanted so badly to add more things to it, but didn't because I ALSO wanted to know that it would be like, as is! I was pleased with the combo of tastes from the oats & cornmeal as well as the walnuts ~ A NICE BISCOTTI! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted orphan chefs at the end of this Spring's Pick-A-Chef]
