"I think this recipe needs to be reworked. I used the pouch gingerbread cookie mix and added just the ingredients in the recipe, not the ones on the cookie package. (There is also a box gingerbread cake mix, maybe that is what is going wrong here, some use the cake, some use the cookie pouch.) I mixed it like pie crust, but it was still so dry and would not hold together, so I added more water, another 1/4 cup. That did the trick. I formed the dough into one long log, like the slice and bake cookies. I sprayed the cookie sheet and baked for 30 minutes, cooled for 10 and then cut them. The log did spread out with baking. When I cut them they did flatten out a little bit more, but still kept the shape of a typical biscotti. Baked again on their sides following the recipe. They did look like the picture. They are great dunked in coffee, which softens them. The flavor is good. I did have some issues with the ends breaking off when I sliced them before I coated them with the white chocolate. But all in all they did turn out looking like the picture."
