Lemon Poppyseeds Biscotti

I have been looking for a chance to bake some lemon biscottis and finally i got a chance to make some as am running this week's Blogging marathon with Lemon recipes as theme for this week. We love double baked biscuits which is well known as biscottis from Italian cuisine. Actually biscottis makes an excellent evening snacks to enjoy thoroughly with a cup of tea or coffee. My lil one love simply any variety of biscottis as he like biscottis to the core. Obviously i dont need any excuses to bake biscottis whenever i feel like baking some, but somehow lemon biscottis was sitting in my to do list since a long. Finally i prepared them for this week's theme. Trust me, we couldnt stop munching these beauties with our favourite drink.
