Lemon Poppy Biscotti

lemon poppyseed biscotti - made these last night...Aug.16/13...they were easy and taste great....but I do prefer the cranberry walnut ones I made before....but also a keeper.  Josie Munro

¼ cup butter, softened
½ cup white sugar
¼ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
1 egg
1 egg white
2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tbsp poppy seeds
1 tbsp lemon zest
Coarse sugar
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Using a stand mixer or a hand mixer, beat the butter on high for half a minute.  Add the sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt.  Mix to combine, scraping down the sides of the bowl.  Add the egg, egg white, lemon juice, lemon zest and the vanilla.  Add the flour and poppy seeds and mix in.  You may need to use you hands to get the last bit of flour incorporated into the dough.
Half the dough and shape each piece into a 7 x 2 inch log.  Place the logs on a pan lined with parchment and sprinkle with coarse sugar.
Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. 
Let the logs cool for 10 minutes and then using a serrated knife cut on a diagonal into ½ inch slices.  Place the slices cut side down back on your baking pans and place back in the oven to cook for a further 10 minutes or until they are lightly browned. 
Let cool and drizzle with white or dark chocolate if desired.
