      I have made these cookies several times and they always come out real nice. I have several biscotti recipes but I like this one best because it calls for very little sugar compared to the others. I also use olive oil for a lower fat content.

      I love any biscotti type of cookie and these are really nice. I made mine vegan so my DH could enjoy them to. Thanks Mirj, for a great recipe!
