By RachelChavez Submitted at June 30, 2011


  • 6 tbs. solid vegetable shortening

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 tsp. vanilla

  • 1 tbs. orange zest

  • 1 tbs. lemon zest

  • 1 tbs. lime zest

  • 2 cups flour

  • 1 tsp. baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp. salt


  1. In an electric mixer, cream the solid vegetable shortening and the sugar together until thoroughly combined. Add the eggs, vanilla, citrus zests and continue mixing. In a separate bowl, sift the flour, salt and baking powder together.

  2. Add the sifted ingredients to the creamed mixture and mix until a dough forms. Divide the dough in two pieces. Form each piece into a log shape that is 12″ in length and place them on a lightly greased baking sheet.

  3. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove the biscotti logs from the oven and cool for 15 minutes. Slice each log on an angle with a serrated knife into 12 to 14 pieces. Place the slices back on the baking sheet and bake for 5 to 7 minutes.

  4. (Recipe yields 24 biscotti cookies.)
