Reviews for Chocolate Chip Biscotti
"These taste good but they were very difficult to slice. I tried making thicker slices and most of them just ended up falling apart. I may try using the ratios from another biscotti recipe and then just add the chocolate chips and apricots instead."
"I did not have any apricots so I replaced it with raisins & my family loved the taste. Next time I will cut them a little thicker to see if that keeps them from falling apart so easily"
"this one taste good , but wants to come apart when slicing"
