Old Favorites For Baking: Lemon Anise Biscotti

Lemon anise biscotti Biscotti was one of the first things my grandmother told me how to make. The family favorite was always Lemon Anise. I was making biscotti for a party and realized I did not have enough anise for the batch. I improvised with what I had in my cupboard.  I chose the Chinese 5 Spice because it had anise in it.  The result was a similar, yet at the same time distinctly different taste. It wasn't just good it was great.

Mix the  contents of the large bag in this package with

  • 2 Eggs Lightly Beaten
  • 2 Tsp Lemon Juice
  • 2 Tbsp Anisette (Optional)
  • ½ tsp Chinese 5 Spice (not the whole packet enclosed)

Preheat your oven to 350 f. Using your hands, mix all ingredients together and knead the dough for 2 to 3 minutes. Divide the dough into 2 pieces. On a floured surface, roll each piece into ½" thick rope.  Place on a greased or parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes. Reset your oven to 275 f. After bread has cooled, use a sharp knife to cut the Biscotti into 1 1/2 inch slices. Bake for 15 minutes more or until Biscotti slices are toasted. Biscotti is traditionally served with coffee and dipped in it prior to eating.

Ingredients: Corn, Arrowroot and Rice Flours, sugar, Chinese 5 Spice (Cinnamon, anise, fennel, clove and black pepper), nutmeg, ginger, coriander, special pure orange extract (alcohol, water and pure orange oil), baking soda and kosher salt.
