These biscotti are for my wedding favours. We're making 3 flavours of biscotti, and this is first one. I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out perfectly!
Here is the recipe, copied from this link: http://www.vrg.org/journal/vj2005issue2/vj2005issue2biscotti.htm
3 cups unbleached flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
Flax seed egg replacer for 3 eggs
1/4 cup agave nectar
2 Tablespoons Malibu rum
1/2 Tablespoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, baking power, baking soda, and lemon zest. Blend well.
With a hand blender, mix lemon juice, oil, egg replacer, agave nectar, rum, and vanilla. Blend until smooth and creamy. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour the liquid ingredients in. Mix until a stiff dough forms. Try not to overmix the dough.
Form into two logs. Lay on a parchment-lined baking sheet and flatten the logs’ tops. Bake for 30 minutes. Logs should give a little, like a cake, when they are done. Remove from oven and let cool for at least half an hour.
Lower oven temperature to 325 degrees. Cut the logs in slices on the slant, about 1/2-inch thick or more if you like thicker biscotti. Lay biscotti flat on a pizza screen or baking sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes. If you use a baking sheet, turn the biscotti halfway through baking. Biscotti should be crisp and lightly browned.
