The biscotti tased great. I did add 1/2 cup oil, however, as I could not get dough to even form into a ball to divide it in half - it was too dry. Next time I make this recipe, I think I would cut back on the poppy seeds by a tablespoon and increase the lemon extract and lemon zest as the lemon flavor got hidden by the poppy seeds.

Because other reviewers said this wasn't lemony enough and because I didn't have any lemon extract, I added 4 tablespoons of lemon juice. I also added 1 T. of oil because I didn't want these to be rock hard. So, I had to add about 1/2 c. extra flour. I also added extra poppy seeds--maybe 1/4 c. extra. I can taste the lemon, and the biscotti are nice and crispy, without being tooth-chipping.

This was so easy to make. As previous members stated I added 6 tablespoon of lemon juice. i didnt have lemon extract. Also I added grounded up walnuts instead of almonds. Will use this again!
