"Often referred to as Jewish biscotti, my grandmother got this recipe from a neighbor over 40 years ago. They both used almonds, my mother used walnuts and I prefer pecans. It has a sweeter taste and softer texture than biscotti. A great hit with kids!" — Shortcake

maraschino cherries, halved
This exact recipe just came in Cooking Light magazine for December '09. I made it and it's very good.
This was the first time I've made a biscotti type of cookie. Turned out both tasting good and very nice to look at! I made them per the recipe and have them in an air tight container to take to the Kea'au Christmas parade next week. Along with some peppermint schnapps to put in the hot coco!! Yummy
These are delicious but next time I will add more cherries. I drizzled the tops with melted chocolate.
Very similar to a biscotti, this little cookie is wonderful with coffee or tea. The cookie is not too sweet and has good flavor, but the next time I would omit the cinnamon sugar.
