These are pretty good. I didn't have fresh lavender leaves so I used 1 tbsp of dried leaves (I got them from World Market). The lavender flavor overpowered the orange flavor for me but I would probably make these again. I'm not a huge biscotti fan but I wanted to make something sweet that would last a while without a lot of calories. I also made the white chocolate lemon biscotti on the same day and I think those are definitely better. I have also made the CL almond biscotti as a gift and they loved it. I used my kitchenaid mixer and a dark baking sheet, so i reduced the temp by 25 degrees to make sure they didn't brown.

Really fantastic and super easy. Fresh lavender is a must, though

Mmmmmm delicious! I even messed up by adding the egg whites too soon, but a lot of Kitchen Aid magic seemed to help. I used all of the orange rind for another recipe after I had decided to make these, so I used lemon instead. They're veeeeery yummy and addictive. Definitely worth the time it takes to wait for them to be ready.
