Author Notes

The recipe is from my grandmother. I made it every week and we have it for breakfast. Just perfect to dunk your bread into coffee. It is similar to biscotti, but denser. We own a casual Resturant and not only did the customers love it but we couldn't keep it in stock because the waitstaff couldn't stop eating it. A true keeper. —Gail Flynn
