fantastic tasting recipe, I love the combination of white chocolate and lemon. I doubled the lemon extract to 1/2 tsp after reading other reviews, and baked for 30 minutes instead of 35 for a slightly chewier biscotti (still did 10 on each side afterward).
White Chocolate-Lemon Biscotti

i made a ton of changes, and it still turned out FABULOUSLY. i didn't have any lemon extract, so i only put in 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract, and 1 1/4 tsp of lemon juice. i wasnt in a white-chocolate mood, so i tossed in a handful of chopped blanched almonds. also, i used 1 c whole wheat flour and 2/3 c all purpose and cut the sugar back to 1 c. i was considering bringing them to a friend's house, but i think i might hoard them in my own kitchen instead...

I just made these and they are delicious! I am not a biscotti person, I do not drink coffee, but I love these! I dunked mine in milk as a dessert treat. I also made the lavender and orange biscotti at the same time and they did not compare to these. I've also made the CL almond biscotti before as a gift and I think this recipe is by far the best. I didn't alter anything in the recipe, except I only had a 4 oz bar of white chocolate instead of 6 oz and it still has good flavor. I used my kitchen aid mixer and I have a dark baking pan so I reduced the temp by 25 degrees. The dough was a bit sticky so I had to keep re-flouring my hands, but the results are oh so worth it.

love this recipe! I have made it multiple times now. I do have one complaint/ question. I have the Cooking light complete cook book and it has this same exact recipe. The only exception is the nutrition info, the book says 103 calories per 1 biscotti. Why are they different if the recipes are the same?

LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe. I eat biscotti as a treat in place of fattening cookies. Trust me when I say that this particular recipe is the best substitute for a cookie that I've found yet. Lemon and white chocolate is a wonderful combo!

Delicious! Love that these don't have a ton of sugar and NO butter! The white chocolate chips definitely add a little bit of sweetness to the biscotti. My changes: used 1 cup whole wheat flour and 2/3 cup all purpose flour (per another reviewer's suggestion) and put a splash of orange extract as well. I will DEFINITELY be making these again and again!

I have made this twice this week because my family requested it. Even though you get bewteen 30-40 biscotti, it's not enough! Easy recipe with tasty results!!

This has been my go-to biscotti recipe for years since it first came out in CL in 2002. I love that they have no butter. Both the lemon/white chocolate and orange/semi-sweet chocolate versions are great. Perfect sweet pick-me-up with a cup of coffee.

I have made a lot of biscotti but this one was a "fail" for me. It spread out like a lace cookie, crumbled when I sliced it, and all the surviving slices broke when I turned them over during the second baking. Wondered if it should have more flour - but recipe worked for the other reviewers. The flavor is delicious, though. So, now what to do with a bunch of cookie crumbs?

This recipe is wonderful and delicious! Barely any ingredients and relatively easy to make. The hardest part was figuring out how to fit all of the slices on to one tray! :P

I've made these a few times now and the flavor is delicious. Really flavorful with such few ingredients. Like TripleTreat mentioned, my batter also spread quite a bit this time. I think it needs a bit of extra flour and next time I'll definitely put down some parchment.

These were a great addition to the Christmas platter.
