    Annacia's Note:

    Legal cookies that taste good! I enjoy making biscotti and lemon is one of my favorite things so this is a double winner in my book. It says that it will make 36 but I can't seem to get that many. *EDIT*, I have changed the yield to a more realistic 25. *wink*

      These biscottis are great and I like that they are low-cal. I love lemon taste and these biscottis have a great lemon taste. The only thing I changed, was that I used all purpose flour and unsalted butter. They're not too hard even though I added a few minutes of cooking. Thanks Annacia. Made for 123 hit wonders

      This recipe was good. But I had to add nearly 1 1/2 cups more so it turned into a dough. Icooked it the first time for exactly what you said and it didn't work, so I did it again (this time cooking for 25 minutes and then cooking the slices on 135*C on each side for 10 minutes each. Overall very nice
