I tried this variation of Lemon Biscotti after changing a few details - absolutely yummy and it's low fat AND only 1 Weight Watcher's point per cookie - bonus!

I have never made nor eaten Biscotti and I thought it was very good. Made for PAC fall 2007

MADE FOR PAC FALL '07 I love biscotti! I love almond! I should love this recipe, too. I will re-make it and update rating if applicable, but as I made it (as written, minus ground almonds), it didn't finish baking, and did not obtain the attractive color that is the norm. The flavor was quite good, and I WILL make this again to ensure that the issue wasn't mine. I recommend that you try it and watch your baking time closely.
