Twice-baked Italian-inspired cookies are a snap when you start with a cake mix.

Ingredients

Biscotti

1
box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ lemon cake mix
1/2
cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1
tablespoon vegetable oil
2
eggs
2
tablespoons grated lemon peel
1
tablespoon grated lime peel
1
tablespoon grated orange peel

Easy Lemon Glaze

1/4
cup Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy lemon frosting
2
to 4 teaspoons lemon juice

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Lightly grease or spray large cookie sheet. In large bowl, mix biscotti ingredients with spoon until dough forms.
  • 2 On cookie sheet, shape dough into 14x3-inch rectangle, 1/2 inch thick. Bake 19 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on cookie sheet on cooling rack 15 minutes.
  • 3 Cut dough crosswise into 1/2-inch slices. Arrange slices cut side up on cookie sheet. Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until bottoms are light golden brown; turn slices over. Bake 7 to 8 minutes longer or until bottoms are light golden brown. Cool 5 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  • 4 In small bowl, mix glaze ingredients until thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over biscotti. Before stacking biscotti, let stand about 4 hours or until glaze is set. Store loosely covered.

Expert Tips

You will need 2 medium to large lemons, 1 large lime and 1 medium orange for the grated peel needed for these fresh-tasting crisp cookies.

Skip the Easy Lemon Glaze, and dip half of each cookie into melted white chocolate or vanilla-flavored candy coating. After dipping cookies, place them on a cooling rack until the chocolate is set.

Try a cup of a hot citrus-flavored tea with these crisp biscotti--and yes, dunking is allowed!
