Margarine? Why for the love of gods would anyone use axle grease for consumption. This crap is molecules away from being plastic. - 08 Oct 2013
Interesting twist on the traditional biscotti di regina, my italian aunts were initially very suspicious of the cardamom and thought there was too much lemon extract but I guess it's a matter of taste. Forming these cookies is fairly time consuming so to speed things along a bit I measure out a half cup of dough, gently roll/coax it to a cylinder approx half inch in diameter and cut off 1.5 inch lengths. - 17 Feb 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
A superb cookie! Should be included in any selection of great traditional Italian cookie presentations. The cardamom,lemon sesame blend is wonderfully subtle. - 16 Jun 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
