    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!
