    This stuff is wonderful! I accidentally forgot to turn the oven down for the second baking, and they got wonderfully toasted looking! I love them that way!
    Thank you for submitting this recipe FORGIVEME!

    A bit sweet for biscotti, it's more cookie-like, but still amazingly good. I did have to add more flour that what was called for so it didn't thin out too much on the baking sheet. My husband also liked them and he doesn't like cranberries :) Thanks, FORGIVEME!!! - 12/21/08

    i added 1/4 t of almond extract, nixed the lemon juice, and used 2c white and 1/3 c whole wheat flour. Additionally I used cherries rather than cranberries. Ok. So I didn't follow the recipe, but I used this as the base and it was excellent. Next time I would use 1.3c of white and 1c of wheat - 12/30/07
