Lemon Biscotti

What to make for Halloween?

Well anyways, I made some lemon biscotti this weekend with the following recipe! IT was very good.  I made a few slight changes that i have changed below!

 Luscious Lemon  Biscotti (slightly changed from recipe on
1/4 cup light olive oil

3/4 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons lemon zest
juice from 1 1/2 lemons
2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/4 cups (6-ounce) bar premium white chocolate, chopped

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. In a large bowl, mix together oil and sugar until well blended. mix in the vanilla and lemon extracts and zest, then beat in the eggs. Combine flour, salt, and baking powder; gradually stir into egg mixture.
Divide dough in half. Form two logs (12x2 inches) on a cookie sheet that has been lined with parchment paper. Dough will be very sticky; wet hands with cool water to handle dough more easily.
Bake for 35 minutes in the preheated oven, or until logs are light brown. Remove from oven, and set aside to cool for 10 minutes. Reduce oven heat to 275 degrees F.
Cut logs on diagonal into 3/4 inch thick slices. Lay on sides on parchment covered cookie sheet. Bake approximately 8 to 10 minutes, or until dry; cool.
Meanwhile, melt the white chocolate in a double boiler or using your preferred method. Mix in juice from half a lemon.  When the biscotti is cool, dip, spread, or drizzle white chocolate and allow the cookies to dry on a cookie sheet before storing in an air tight container.

It looks amazing and is just as good especially the icing :) I just mixed the chocolate with lemon juice to give it a more glaze like texture :) mmmm
