Lemon Almond Biscotti

Crumbly, buttery biscotti with a tang of lemon and a crunch of almonds on top.

Lemon Almond Biscotti

I came up with this biscotti because I really wanted to make something using that awesome lemon almond flavor combo. This is the same basic biscotti recipe as that chocolate covered vanilla biscotti  that I love so much. Add some lemon and almonds and wham I still can’t stop eating them … breakfast, lunch, dinner … they’re an all day sort of cookie, right?Lemon Almond BiscottiThe thing I love about this biscotti recipe is that it is a lot softer than most biscotti. It has more of a crumbly and buttery texture to it that keeps your teeth intact and your dentist happy. Most biscotti is so crunchy that you have to dip it in coffee or tea just to be able to bite through it … while I’m all for dunking cookies, it’s nice for dunking to be optional.
