- 1.5 cups granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Zest of 2 lemons
- 1 tablespoon poppyseed
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- 5 tablespoons shortening
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup dried blueberries
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Sift together the flour, almond flour, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
- Add poppyseeds to the flour mix.
- In a mixer on medium speed, mix the shortening and sugar until it’s light and fluffy.
- Mix eggs until well combined.
- Add vanilla extract, lemon zest, and dried blueberries.
- Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until a dough forms. Do not overmix.
- Divide the dough in half and shape each portion into a log, approximately 10 inches long and 1.5 inches wide. Place the logs on the prepared baking sheet, leaving some space between them.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the logs turn a light golden brown. The aroma will fill your kitchen, teasing your senses with anticipation.
- Remove the biscotti logs from the oven and let them cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet. This will allow them to firm up slightly for easy slicing.
- Using a sharp knife, cut the logs diagonally into 1/2-inch thick slices. Lay the biscotti back on the baking sheet.
- Bake for an additional 10-12 minutes or until the biscotti achieve a lovely golden hue and a crisp texture. This second bake will give your Lemon Blueberry Biscotti that irresistible crispy crunch we crave.
Once the biscotti have cooled completely, it’s time to indulge in their zesty deliciousness. Brew a fresh cup of tea or coffee, find a cozy spot, and savor the flavors of summer with each bite.
