How to make it

  • To prepare biscotti, mix together flour, granulated sugar, salt and baking powder.
  • Rub in butter with fingertips or pastry blender until mixture resembles cornmeal.
  • Whisk eggs with lemon zest.
  • Stir in flour mixture with fork until dough holds together.
  • Scrape dough from bowl to floured work surface and knead lightly several times to mix.
  • Divide dough into two equal pieces.
  • Roll each into cylinder about 12 inches long.
  • Transfer cylinders to baking sheet covered with parchment paper or buttered aluminum foil.
  • Flatten them with palm of hand so that they are about 1/2" thick. Bake at 350F on middle rack about 30 minutes until well risen, deep golden and firm.
  • Cool on pan for 15 minutes.
  • Remove logs from pan.
  • Cut into diagonal slices about 1/2" wide.
  • Return slices to pan and arrange close together, cut side down. Bake about 20 minutes longer, until cut surfaces are deep golden in color.
  • Immediately after removing biscotti from oven, prepare glaze by combining powdered sugar and lemon juice in small pan.
  • Stir well to mix.
  • Cook over low heat, stirring, until bubbly around edges.
  • Immediately brush glaze over warm biscotti.
  • Leave on pan until cooled and glaze is firm.
