      These were fun to make and delicious. I followed the recipe exactly and found the flavors of cinnamon, coffee and cocoa well balanced. I have been making biscotti for about 2 months, trying different recipes to get the perfect texture, flavor etc. Texture on this recipe is excellent. This is going into my favorites to have on hand for all occassions!

      I love these. I added a bit more then a tablespoon of coffee crystals to the dough, and I didn't have any espresso powder, so I just used a double dose of coffee crystals there. The texture is prefect!

      This was nice biscotti. I added 2 tablespoons of cofee crystals to give it a little more flavor. The drizzle also gives it a nice sweet touch. My daughter also liked them too. :)
