Lemon, Vanilla Cookies – Biscotti al Limone e Vaniglia

Music: Alabama Boy, Alice Peacock. I think lemon desserts always have a sweeter flavour when shared with true friends. Each bite, lemon will remind you of something – that friendship has a taste that never goes sour. We love Alice Peacock’s music, and it’s such a shame that just a few people know her in Italy. I hope you’ll look for this song, or any other – they’re all perfect and her voice is sublime.


15o gr butter

100 gr powder sugar

1 Tuscan lemon, juice and peel

240 gr flour

15 gr starch

1 pinch of salt

1 vanilla bean, seeds removed

Cream together the butter with the sugar, the lemon and the vanilla seeds. Add the starch, the flour and the salt. Place the dough in the fridge for a few hours, form into cookies and bake in a 180Ā° C oven for about 10-15 minutes.
