  • Iced triple lemon biscotti

      I have finally found a fabulous lemon biscotti recipe! These have so much lemon flavor and I haven't even bothered to put the lemon glaze on them. Two thumbs up and 5 stars! The logs are a bit fragile when warm so let them cool for at least 20 minutes on the baking pan before moving. High altitude (6200 ft.) adjustments: None.

      These biscotti did not meet my expected biscotti standard overall. Although they were good but not excellent, don't think I will use this recipe again. A subtle lemon taste was detectable - it was not enough to call these "lemon" biscotti. Yet, I followed the recipe exactly And added half a teaspoon of fresh lemon rind. I also found the dough was a bit hard to handle. It was quite dry but the water from my hands allowed me to work it into logs for the first baking. For the second baking, I didn't find the oven temperature adequate so I increased it to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. I enhanced the flavour significantly by icing these as per the "triple" lemon biscotti recipe in the book. Considering the work and time to make these, I must admit being a bit disappointed.

      A day after making these, I found that the flavour of the biscotti had developed in a positive way. As well, they are mostly gone, enjoyed by my family with no complaints to speak of.

Ciao Biscotti is a collection of 44 authentic biscotti from Italian cooking expert Domenica Marchetti. Studded with nuts, adorned with chocolate, or dotted with dried fruit, biscotti, Italy's unique twice-baked cookies have a crunchy, toasty, enduring appeal. Perfect for dunking into coffee, tea, or Vin Santo, they're easy to make; and transform a simple bowl of ice cream or sorbet into a special dessert. With savory ingredients swapped for the sweet ones, biscotti are a delicious accent to a cheese platter. Nibble on traditional flavors such as Hazelnut or Anise, coffeehouse neo-classics like Christmas Cranberry-Pistachio, tempting new versions such as Browned Butter and Toblerone, or savory ones, including Mountain Gorgonzola and Walnut and taste the perfection of a classic cookie. Ciao biscotti!
