“I used the heart smart Honey Almond Biscotti as a base mixture for experimentation and came up with these guys. A yummy lemon fix for calorie counters. Tip: I found fine ground almonds in the bulk aisle in Save On Foods. The 3/4 cup dried cranberries can be substituted with whole or ground almonds, or diced candied ginger, or whatever you like, really.”
