Gluten Free Dairy Free Lemon Basil Biscotti

Ingredients

cup sugar
1 teaspoon lemon extract
1 tablespoon lemon zest (approx. zest of 1/2 lemo
1 1/4 cups all-purpose gluten free flour (see About section)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Preparation

1
Preheat oven to 350F. Lined two rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
2
In a large bowl (or the bowl of a stand-mixer fitted with paddle attachment), combine eggs, sugar and lemon extract, beat until well combined. Add zest and basil and stir until mixed.
3
In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients: flour, baking powder and salt.
4
Add dry ingredients to wet and stir/beat well to combine. The dough will come together quickly, be fairly dry and very easy to handle.
5
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and shape into a loaf approximately 7 inches long by 3 inches wide - be careful not to overwork the dough.
6
Place loaf on one of the prepared baking sheets and bake for 20-25 minutes or until lightly brown and firm to touch. Remove the loaf from the oven and allow to cool completely. Reduce oven to 300 F.
7
Once the loaf has cooled, using a serrated knife, cut on a diagonal to create 1/4-inch thick slices.
8
Arrange slices in a single layer on the second baking sheet and bake for 30-35 minutes (or until crisp and golden brown on both sides), turning once during baking.
9
Allow cookies to cool completely then enjoy!

About

I used Better Batter Flour blend for the recipe which includes xanthan gum -- if you use another flour blend, check to see if it includes the gum as a binder -- otherwise, add 1/2 TSP xanthan gum to the dry ingredients.
