"Yummy Biscotti's, no fat, this is the first time that I have made biscotti's that didn't have either butter or oil in them. They have a nice lemon flavor with the hint of ginger, we love ginger. This recipe will go into my Biscotti cookbook. Thank you Chia."
"I regularly volunteer for the Molly Brown House in Denver and bake pastries for the afternoon teas. These biscotti are perfect dipped in a cup of tea. I used fresh grated ginger instead of ground to up the ginger spice a little. Because the dough is sticky, I put the mixing bowl of dough in the fridge for about half an hour before trying to handle it. I shaped four smaller logs by hand (and I kept wetting my hands to keep them from sticking) to make mini-biscotti which when sliced diagonally were about four inches long. These are very pretty and tasty accompaniments to coffee and tea!"
"These are nice with tea. Like some other reviewers, I needed to bake these a bit longer than specified."
"Wow, excellent! Such a delicate lemony taste, and the ginger comes through very gently. Mine were also a bit soft after the first round in the oven (high altitude?), but crisped up nicely after the second go. I spread a bit of Recipe #188578 on some of them and they are really good with or without. These will be perfect for the Christmas party tonight. Thanks, Chia!"
"Nice. Very lemony and fresh tasting. Mine were also pretty soft after the first backing and needed more time in the oven than the recipe calls for. Also, beware, they spread out on the pan more than other biscotti I've made. Make sure the two loaves are far apart from each other."
"The ginger flavor is milder than I anticipated but the lemon shines through. Mine was still a tad doughy in the center after the first 20 minute bake so I added 10 more minutes before cooling,cutting & rebaking. The biscotti is crunchy but for the very top center of each slice which is softer. This will be a wonderful way to get my fix without the fat. Thanks for sharing!"
"These are WONDERFUL biscotti. The lemon is nice and bright the ginger has just the right bite. It's a wonderful combination. We love biscotti and I'll definitely be making this one again and again."
