These crunchy Italian cookies are flavored with lemon, tea and vanilla. They go great with afternoon tea, or after dinner coffee.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease two baking sheets.
  • COMBINE flour, baking powder and salt in medium bowl. Beat sugar and butter in large mixer bowl until light and creamy. Beat in eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla extract and lemon peel.
  • COMBINE Nestea and water in small bowl; stir until tea is dissolved. Add to sugar mixture. Gradually stir in flour mixture and nuts. Shape dough into two 11 x 2-inch logs on each baking sheet; smooth sides with rubber spatula.
  • BAKE for 20 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center of each log comes out clean. Slide logs onto cutting board and cut diagonally into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Return to baking sheets cut side down.
  • BAKE, turning biscotti over halfway through, for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
