These Lemon Tea Biscotti are crunchy Italian cookies flavored with lemon, tea and vanilla. They go great with afternoon tea or after dinner coffee. Also great as a snack!

Biscotti To Go...
No time for a cup of tea and biscotti? These delicious treats are on-the-go-friendly. The tea and lemon are already in the biscotti - now that's multi-tasking! After the second baking time, I immediately brushed them with a lemon glaze (confectioner's sugar, butter, milk, and lemon juice) for an extra kick of sweetness and lemon. This recipe will certainly be a 'keeper' in my family. Thanks for sharing it with us.
