Great recipe. I didn't have anise extract so used almond extract instead and the cookies turned out well. I've been making a chocolate walnut biscotti for years but wanted to try a non-chocolate version. This recipe is so simple that I wasn't expecting the cookies to turn out as well as they did. My chocolate biscotti are crisper than these (maybe because they are made with butter instead of oil), but I may like the texture of these better - more crumbly, a bit easier on the teeth. I bought some anise extract to try next time.

Almond Shortbread I
Awesome. Flaky, crumbly, not too sweet. My dough was very crumbly and tough to work with, I thought maybe I had added too much flour, but it all came together after sitting in the frig for a few hours. I rolled into logs then sliced 1/2 inch thick and pressed some sugar into the tops before baking. I think I may have had trouble if I tried to roll out this dough and cut with cookie cutters. I love shortbread and have tried many recipes that did not work for me, but this one was perfect. Next time I will use orange or lemon zest in place of the almond extract.

Playgroup Granola Bars
These are great, very versatile. I've made them many times. I cut the brown sugar to 1/2 cup, use half whole wheat pastry flour, and use dried figs or dried apples in place of raisins (I hate raisins). I add 1/2 cup walnuts or pecans and will sometimes use half flaxseed meal/half wheat germ. They always turn out great and keep well for a few days. I put them in the freezer if it's going to be longer than that.
