Never heard of these bricks.

I love ’em! “Bricks” is a good description: You roll them and cut them and put them on the pans, then cover them with cloth and set them aside for at least 12 hours before you bake them. They should be hard, and you dunk them in coffee or hot tea in order to eat them.

lol – I had to look up your recipe. Then I had to look at the biscotti… Ahem. Are the springerle [spring-er-li ?] like shortbread?

SPRING-er-lee. They’re not at all like shortbread. No shortening! They do puff up during baking because of the eggs and baking powder, but they get rock-hard. Perfect dipping cookie. 🙂
