 Ingredients List

  • 3 1/2 c Flour

  • 1/2 c Softened butter
  • 2 ts Baking powder
  • 1/2 ts Grated lemon rind
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 2 Eggs


This is the recipe for my mother's type of biscotti:

Blend everything in large bowl and mix. Roll out on floured board and cut
with a four inch water glass. Make 12 circles. Line greased cupcake pan
with the 12 circles. Fill each cup with pastry cream (below). Top each
with another circle cut with a 3 inch glassmake sure the cake is sealed.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes at 375... Let cool completely in pan.

This is my mom's cream-puff cream. It's just a sweet, vanilla cornstarch
pudding. I'm giving you the microwave recipe, because otherwise it takes
an eternity of stirring on the stove, after which your arm will fall off.
If you choose to cook it that way, make sure you keep the heat low while
you're waiting for the stuff to thicken, and never ever stop stirring, or
the cream will stick to the bottom and burn and then you will have a
million nasty little brownish-black flecks throughout your pudding, which
will do absolutely nothing for the texture.

In microwave bowl, mix:

2/3 c sugar
3 T cornstarch
1/4 t salt

add a fraction of 2 C milk, a little at first to make a smooth paste, then
the rest until the mixture is smooth. Microwave this at high for 8-9
minutes, stirring every 2 min until the stuff is smooth and thickened.

Meanwhile, put 3 egg yolks (or two whole eggs) into another bowl and beat
them slightly. Quickly stir half of the hot milk mixture into eggs, and
then add the new egg mixture to the origianl milk mixture. Microwave at
high 1 to 2 min until mixture is thick and glossy. Add 1 T butter 1 t
vanilla extract (And, optionally, for extra flavor) 1 t almond extract
