Lemon Rosemary Biscotti Bites

Wayyyyy back in the day – two years ago to be precise – I won a batch of Earl Gray Biscotti from Sarah of Tales of Expansion. I’ve been thinking about them ever since!!

  • 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp any-kind-of sugar
  • 2 tbsp herb of your choice chopped fresh rosemary for me
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 chopped dates
  • 1.5 tbsp cold butter cut into pieces
  • 1.5 tbsp canola oil


  • It will be really dry and crumbly, so you’ll want to mash it all together into a ball before molding into a square snake. This was harder to do than it seems, but possible! Mine was tiny – only about a thumbnail cross section, so you can shape it however you like – or double the recipe for bigger pieces.
  • Wrap the snake in plastic and chill for 30 minutes.
  • After chilling, slice biscotti and bake at 375* for 8-10 minutes.
  • The thumbnail squares are awesome, but the two BALLS I made are even better!! I’d recommend forming the dough into balls and baking for 10 minutes. Divine!
