Yummy Biscotti's, no fat, this is the first time that I have made biscotti's that didn't have either butter or oil in them. They have a nice lemon flavor with the hint of ginger, we love ginger. This recipe will go into my Biscotti cookbook. Thank you Chia.

I regularly volunteer for the Molly Brown House in Denver and bake pastries for the afternoon teas. These biscotti are perfect dipped in a cup of tea. I used fresh grated ginger instead of ground to up the ginger spice a little. Because the dough is sticky, I put the mixing bowl of dough in the fridge for about half an hour before trying to handle it. I shaped four smaller logs by hand (and I kept wetting my hands to keep them from sticking) to make mini-biscotti which when sliced diagonally were about four inches long. These are very pretty and tasty accompaniments to coffee and tea!

These are nice with tea. Like some other reviewers, I needed to bake these a bit longer than specified.
