Sometimes you just need a cookie that you really have to bite into. A crunchy, hard, almost crack your teeth on it kind of cookie.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big fan of soft brown butter chocolate chip cookies or pillowy sugar cookies but sometimes a girl just needs a biscotti to go along with her coffee to spice up an otherwise blah Monday morning.
Lemon is the star of these bad boys and it gets balanced out by some white chocolate chunks. It’s a gold star kind of combination.
I just love adding lemon to things; a little zest here, a squeeze of juice there and you’re on your way. There’s something about the simultaneous bitterness, brightness and freshness it brings to foods that I just can’t get enough of. I know I’m not the only one who thinks this because I have this conversation almost every week with one of the physical therapist assistants at the clinic I go to. They get me.
Lemon zest, lemon extract, white chocolate. Preheat your ovens and start baking!
Then make yourself some strong coffee, dunk in a biscotti and get to work. It’s the little things that make Mondays (or any day) go a little bit faster.
