A hint of pumpkin seed and almond gives this biscotti a wonderful flavor that's just right for fall. Try these with a cup of coffee or hot cocoa! —Nancy Renner, Sequim, Washington

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 21, 2015

"If I make these again , I would do as some of the other i reviewer's suggested and add more flour or possibly a little less oil. My dough spread during the first baking and made it difficult to remove from the pan and many of them crumbled as I I cut them apart. They still tasted very good though, so I may try again."

"The batter was very wet. I added lots of flour to counter top and top of mixture so that I could shape the cookie batter. Used a large spatula to move it to cookie sheet. In the end the biscotti baked great, was easy to slice for second baking and tasted great. Not too dry like other biscottii I have made. I also liked the almond extract flavor added"

"Good cookies, but I had to add additional flour to get the dough to keep the loaf shape."
