I added cinnamon to my dough, because I just love cinnamon!! I love it!! I love it so much that I usually double the amount of cinnamon that goes into my apple pies just to make it taste more like cinnamon. So for me it made sense to add a complete teaspoon of cinnamon.
With no eggs left in the house I decided to take my chances and see what the biscotti would be like. The taste was actually OK, but the texture of the biscotti was way to grainy: the bulgur had remained as tiny little hard granules. I took them to work and all though they were nog to my liking, my coworkers actually liked them. Some even came back for another one!! But me being a perfectionist, I just knew I had to make this recipe again, with the cornmeal added this time!
A tip from Linda of Tender Crumb was to spray the log wet when cutting it into strips so it wouldn't crumble as much. This worked really well!!

Now it's time to introduce my sweet pets to you all, here they are:
Senna, my 2-year old cat who loves to lay about, take everything in, sneak herself into the background of pictures, food and taking naps
Scott, my 6-year old Border Collie who loves to play, eat, sleep, play, eat and play!
Update: my coworkers preferred the non-bulgur biscotti over the bulgur biscotti, big surprise!! Hahaha!
