Directions

for those having trouble with the dough sticking, maybe using parchment paper would be a good idea.

MY REVIEW

Why does the recipe say not to grease the pan? My cookie loaves stuck like mad! The fir st loaf was pretty broken up. The second was better because I was able to slide my offset spatula carefully under it once the first loaf was gone. Flavors are good but I think I'll use the flavors in a more dependable biscotti recipe. I read the comments to see if anyone else had this problem and it didn't appear that they did so I guess I was just unlucky tonight.

Outstanding. I was concerned that starting with a cake mix would make it have a different texture, but this has quickly become a family favorite.
