These are really good. Have seen the recipe before and only change is I use homemade cinnamon chips instead of store bought. They taste a lot better and are easy to make. You can find recipe for home made cinnamon chips online.
I made these as Xmas gifts and gave just got some feedback now! GREAT and my friends want the recipe! Made with some cinnamon chips that YOU very kindly sent me, and I will be making these again for us now! Made for the Aussie/NZ recipe swap 35 and a wonderful recipe for Xas gifts Sarah! Merci! FT:-)
A GREAT BISCOTTI RECIPE, & that comes from someone who really enjoys biscotti! The only change I made was to use sliced almonds, even though I had a lot of walnuts on hand! Really enjoyed the taste of the cinnamon here, & the recipe is one I'll be making again! Thanks for posting it! [Tagged, made & reviewed as a PRESSIE in the AUs/NZ 12 Days of Christmas Recipe Swap]
