Lemon Pistachio Biscotti Recipe from MissintheKitchen.com #holiday #cookies

Biscotti has become the favorite cookie at our house and I’m loving every new version I bake! Really the possibilities are endless!

We have a great debate over chewy versus crunchy cookies at our house but crunchy biscotti is one we can all agree on. Biscotti is my favorite anytime snack and I love to grab a couple to go with my morning coffee.

Biscotti is super crunchy because you bake it twice. It’s an extra step beyond your regular cookie baking but totally worth it! I think just one bite of these Lemon Pistachio Biscotti and you will agree!

Bake it for 15 minutes, flip it and bake for another 15 minutes. Lots of baking, but that’s how they get so crunchy and delicious.

The lemon and pistachio combination was pretty fantastic. I think pistachio and dark chocolate would also be fabulous, maybe I will try those next. If you need a chocolate fix, my Chocolate Chip Biscotti is phenomenal!

  1. How do you keep dough from being extremely sticky? Very difficult to form into log. Very wet and sticky. Help!!!
