German Biscotti! Who Knew! Wow, these are wonderful I had two and put the rest in the freezer or I don't think that any of the 19 cookies I got would make it till dark. That right, 19 and I'm not at all unhappy with that. I made this lovely recipe a bit more diabetic friendly for myself by using 3/4 cup of EggBeaters and using only 1 TBS of sugar (for baking properties and completing the rest of the scant 1 cup with Splenda. The subs worked perfectly. I got nicely raised, golden logs (I used an EggBeater wash before baking). The lemon and almond is delish (used almond extract). Oh yes, I toasted the slices for 7 mins which was enough to dry them but not darken the lovely golden color. Two thumbs up!
