Lemon BiscottiSubmitted by: AGARDA
3 tsp vanilla
2 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 stp salt
1 fl oz lemon juice?
In a small bowl whisk together the eggs and vanilla extract. Set aside.
In the bowl of your electric mixer (or with a hand mixer) beat the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, lemon juice/extract until combined. Gradually add the egg mixture and beat until a dough forms. With floured hands divide the dough in half. On a lightly floured surface roll each half of dough into a log about 10 inches (25 cm) long and 2 inches (5 cm) wide. Transfer logs to the prepared baking sheet, spacing about 3 inches (7.5 cm) apart, and bake for about 35-40 minutes, or until firm to the touch (logs will spread during baking). Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack for about 10 minutes.
On a cutting board, with a serrated knife, cut each log crosswise, on the diagonal, into 3/4 inch (2 cm) slices. Arrange the slices on the baking sheet and bake 10 minutes, turn slices over, and bake another 10 minutes or until firm to the touch. Remove from oven and let cool. Store in an airtight container.
Makes about 24 biscotti.
Number of Servings: 24
