These were a success. I also increased the amount of water to about 3 tablespoons and they turned out well this way.

Good cookie bu baking them 18 minutes makes biscoti. I made mine 10 - 11 min for a softer cookie.

Nice, but a dry dough. I had to add 3 tbs more water, so maybe an extra egg next time. I left out the nuts but followed the rest of the recipe. Not sure of the purpose of dissolving the baking soda, though--probably just as easy to just mix it in. I baked at 13 minutes each, not 15-20. Overall, a nice hearty cookie but needs a few adjustments. Thanks for the recipe!

Tasted very healthy. A bit dry also.
