Lemon Cake Mix Biscotti

oatmeal cookies-29

As you may know, I have been on a lavender kick for the last several months. Basically, if it has lavender in it, I’ll take it! I just cannot get enough of the light floral flavor. As you may also know, I’m almost as equally obsessed with lemon. The combination of the two is like a match made in heaven.

I recently discovered the art of soft-baked biscotti. I always thought there was only one bake biscotti, to bake it twice (which is exactly what the word biscotti means). I’ve never actually been a huge fan of biscotti¬†because crunchy cookies are not my favorite. But when I tried soft baked, I instantly had a new favorite. I knew I had to recreate them at home. I put together this easy lemon version that starts with a cake mix. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt in medium bowl. Set aside.-133

IMG_1169Divide dough in half, and shape each piece of dough into a 12-inch log. Lightly press down each log to slightly flatten and create that biscotti loaf appearance. Bake for 30 Minutes until edges are lightly golden.
