For Biscotti:
2 C flour
¾ C cornmeal
1.5 t baking powder
1 t salt
In another bowl, beat:
1 C sugar
3 eggs
Add zest of 3-4 Lemons,
¾ C chopped whole almonds

Chocolate Glaze:
6 ounces of dark or bittersweet chocolate
1 teaspoon vegetable oil

Preheat oven 325 degrees.

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper, then whisk together: Flour, Cornmeal, Baking Powder, Salt.

In another bowl, beat: Sugar, Eggs, Lemon Zest. After mixture is pale yellow and blended, stir in Almonds and dry ingredients and let dough rest for 5 minutes.

Divide the dough into 2 equal parts, and with moistened hands roll the dough into log shapes about 3 inches apart on baking sheet.

Bake for 35 minutes, or until light golden, and cool for 5 minutes.

Using a serrated knife, slice ¾ inch diagonal slices. Place slices on baking sheet, return to oven for additional 15 minutes, or until pale golden. Cool completely on wire rack.

In a double boiler, melt 6 ounces of dark or bittersweet chocolate with 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil.

Using a large tablespoon, liberally drizzle the chocolate on the biscotti, leaving exposed areas. Cool completely in refrigerator.

Recipe yields about two dozen biscotti. Will keep for several weeks in an airtight container, great for gift giving!
