I have been looking for a chance to bake some lemon biscottis and finally i got a chance to make some as am running this week's Blogging marathon with Lemon recipes as theme for this week. We love double baked biscuits which is well known as biscottis from Italian cuisine. Actually biscottis makes an excellent evening snacks to enjoy thoroughly with a cup of tea or coffee. My lil one love simply any variety of biscottis as he like biscottis to the core. Obviously i dont need any excuses to bake biscottis whenever i feel like baking some, but somehow lemon biscottis was sitting in my to do list since a long. Finally i prepared them for this week's theme. Trust me, we couldnt stop munching these beauties with our favourite drink.
If am baking lemon based cakes or bakes, obviously i couldnt stop myself adding black poppy seeds, i dunno why i love to add black poppy seeds everytime in my lemon bakes.I got this biscotti recipe from here, when i was looking for a simple biscotti recipe i got hooked to this recipe, but my biscottis didnt came out as much as prefect like the original recipe, let me blame my knife but tastewise nothing to say as this biscottis came out absolutely incredible.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#46.
