  1. Place the raspberries and 2 tablespoons of sugar into a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until reduced by about 1/3. Remove from heat, and strain through a sieve to remove the seeds. Set aside to cool.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and 1 1/3 cups of sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each one. Stir in the raspberry sauce and lemon zest until well blended. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the batter. Cover and refrigerate for about 10 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease two cookie sheets.
  4. Divide the dough into four equal parts. Form each piece of dough into a 12 inch long log shape on a lightly floured surface. Place two logs onto each cookie sheet, and pat down until they are about 3 inches wide. There should be at least 2 inches of space between each log.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until firm but not crisp. Remove from the oven, and allow to cool for at least 10 minutes.
  6. Place the biscotti bars on a cutting board, and use a serrated knife to cut into 3/4 inch wide slices. Return the slices to the baking sheets cut side down.
  7. Bake for 8 minutes, then turn the cookies over, and bake for an additional 8 minutes, or until lightly toasted on each side. Cool completely, then store in an airtight container.

These were great! I read the other reviews, and I cut down on the eggs and only used two, and added 1/4 cup raspberry jam. Turned out perfectly. Thanks, mcbartko.

- needed more raspberry flavor, so I - used 1/2 c. seedless raspberry jam & 1-2 Tbsp. rasp. flavoring - used 4-5 tsp. lemon zest (from 2 lemons) - made 2 big loaves on 12 x 18 pan - good flavor, soft & dense, not dry & crunchy Dec. 2010

I took others advice and doubled the lemon zest to 4t. (When I make it again I'll add another teaspoon.) And, because I'm lazy and cheap I just used 3/4 cup of some cherry berry preserves I had on hand. YUM!! The texture is slightly different than your standard biscotti, but it still great.

I have made many different kinds of biscottiand was excited to try something different.The uncooked dough had a nice lemon/raspberry flavor, but the raspberry flavor got lost in the baking. Maybe use a rapberry jam or preserves instead of fresh?

Try adding 1 Teaspoon Raspberry Extract.

5 stars once I doubled the raspberries and lemon. SO GOOD and really easy!

I thought these had a very nice, subtle flavor. I used a little less sugar and 2 eggs. I don't have a fine strainer, so I used pantyhose to separate the raspberry juice from the seeds. Kind of messy, but it mostly worked. I'd like to try these again using preserves.

These Biscottis were very good. I would add more lemon and also more raspberries next time I make them, you can only taste a hint of the raspberry and lemon, I also melted some chocolate and added fresh raspberries to the chocolate and dipped each cookie in the chocolate mixture.
