Lemon Fused Olive Oil Biscotti

These crunchy Biscotti are amazing when made with Olive Us Lemon Fused Olive Oil, slivered almonds, dried cranberries and white chocolate.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups unbleached flour (plus 1 Tbl for handling dough)
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup each of slivered almonds, dried cranberries and white chocolate pieces
  • 1/3 cup Olive Us Lemon Fused Olive Oil*
  • ¼ cup Olive Us Ultra Premium (UP) single varietal Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Olive Us Lemon Fused Olive Oil
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ tsp grated lemon zest

Procedure:

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  • In a medium bowl, mix together 2 cups flour, salt, baking powder, slivered almonds, dried cranberries and white chocolate; quick mix and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together Eureka Lemon Fused Olive Oil, single Varietal Olive Oil and brown sugar until combined. Add eggs one at a time and whisk together for one minute until mixture is fluffy. Stir in lemon zest.
  • Add dry ingredients to Olive Oil bowl and mix until it comes together as dough (do not over-mix)
  • Using floured hands, place all of the dough onto the parchment lined baking sheet and form one long rectangular log or two small
  • Place baking sheet in your fridge while your oven preheats. Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat oven to 350°F. Bake until golden brown, 25-30 minutes
  • Remove biscotti from oven and decrease oven temperature to 300°F. When the biscotti logs are cool enough to handle, use a serrated knife to cut logs on the bias to form 1-inch wide cookies. Turn cookies, cut side down on the baking sheet. Return to oven and bake until dry and toasted, about 8 minutes.
