Glazed Lemon Biscotti

A biscotti for my hottie...

I decided to surprise my husband this morning with a good cup of joe and a homemade biscotti.  It's the beginning of his 'birthday week,' and because he spoils me everyday, this is me reciprocating.  

Glazed Lemon Biscotti

1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp lemon zest
3 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp baking powder

1 cup confectioners' sugar
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp lemon zest

Preheat oven to 350F.  Line cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a medium bowl, beat together the oil, eggs, sugar and vanilla extract until well blended.
In separate bowl combine flour, baking powder and lemon zest.  Add into the egg mixture to form a heavy dough.  Divide dough into two pieces.  Form each piece into 12-inch long by 2-inch wide by 1/2-inch thick rectangle.
Bake for 25 - 30 minutes, until golden brown.  Remove from baking sheet and allow to cool on a wire rack.  When cool enough to handle, cut into 1/2 inch slices.  Place cut side up back onto baking sheet.  Return to oven and cook for an additional 6-10 minutes on each side, until lightly toasted.
Allow cookies to cool completely.
To make glaze:  whisk together all ingredients.  Dip or drizzle each cookie in/with the glaze.  Allow glaze to harden before enjoying.

Yields: approximately 3-4 dozen
Store in air-tight container.
