Anise Biscotti

Cuisine: Italian
Courses: Dessert
Serves: 1 people

Recipe Ingredients

2 cups 125g / 4.4ozAll-purpose flour
1 cup 198g / 7ozSugar
1 tablespoon 15mlAnise seed - crushed
1 teaspoon 5mlBaking powder
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlBaking soda
1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlSalt
3   Egg equivalent - or 6 egg whites
2 tablespoons 30mlLemon zest - grated - or- 1 tbsp dry zest
1 tablespoon 15mlLemon juice

Recipe Instructions

Preheat oven to 325 F.

Coat baking sheet with non-stick spray or parchment. In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, anise seeds, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk together egg equivalents, lemon zest, and lemon juice, and add to the dry ingredients. Mix well.

Working on a floured surface, shape dough into two logs, each about 14 inches long and 1-1/2 inches thick. Set the logs on prepared baking sheet, at least 4 inches apart (the dough will spread during baking). Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until firm to the touch.

Transfer the logs to the rack to cool. Reduce oven temperature to 300F. Cut the logs diagonally into 1/2-inch-thick slices, using a serrated knife and a gentle sawing motion. Stand the slices on their sides on the baking sheet and return to the oven. Bake for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely before storing. Biscotti will crisp as they cool. Store, in an air-tight container, up to one month.
