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

The worst waste of pure ingredients in a long time. Gail Flynn should reimburse me for this waste of time and money! The dough would not mold into loaves even as Gail suggested, adding water to hands. Never try this!

This recipe does not include chilling the dough for one to two hours before forming into loaves.
