Something is not right. the dough is super sticky and does not form the cylinders even with flouring my hands. I had to use wax paper to form the cylinders.after refrigerating for over 30 minutes it was still very soft and sticky. after putting the cylinders in the oven the dough spread out all over the place. after 20 minutes i took them out tried to cut them(raw in the middle)and put them back in. after a few minutes they were burning. Not good! Read More

The dough set up nicely in said logs however when cooking it was very sticky in the middle and did not allow me to cut the logs into smaller pieces. The dough tastes great when cooked long enough however the instructions could be much more detailed. Read More

previous reviewer is right very sticky dough that spreads. I found cutting into long strips and rotating these every few minutes of baking gave evenly cooked biscuits that look like biscotti Read More

Definitely did not hold shape in the oven. I ended up with a sheet of dough that I had to continue baking for long after the recipe called for to get it to not be sticky in the middle. Ended up with strips of dough that look terrible. Tastes ok. Read More
