Make the Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and line one to two cookie sheets with Gefen Parchment Paper.

  2. Beat eggs and sugar. Add oil, vanilla and almond extract.
  3. Add flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix until just incorporated.
  4. Mix in cereal and almonds. Do not overmix.
  5. Allow dough to rest for 15 minutes.
  6. Form dough into a log the length of your baking sheet (for smaller biscotti, divide dough in half and form a log on two baking sheets).
  7. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and slice into half-inch slices while still hot.
  8. Lower oven temp to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
  9. Lay biscotti slices on their side and return to oven for another seven minutes

For the Frosting

  1. In a bowl, combine icing sugar, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla and stir until there are no lumps.

  2. While biscotti are still warm, drizzle the frosting over with a spoon or fork.

    You can use cranberries (craisins), coconut, chocolate chips, chopped dates, chopped dried apricots (almost any dried fruit) cherries, for example. If you use almond extract, be sure it is not actually made from almonds, if that is the situation, use vanilla instead.
