     1/2 c  Butter, softened
       1 c  Sugar
       3    Eggs, divided
       1 tb Anise seeds
       2 ts Grated lemon peel

     Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a cookie sheet. Combine butter,

   baking powder and baking soda. Stir into butter mixture; mix well.
    Stir in walnuts and raisins. Divide dough in half. Shape each half
 into

   beat egg white; brush over rolls.  Bake in upper third of oven at 350
   degrees for 30 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove from oven.
 Reduce
   temperature to 325 degrees.  Using a sharp knife, cut rools diagonally
 into
   1/2 inch slices.  Place slices, cut side down, on cookie sheet. Return

 almost
   dry.  cool on wire racks.  Makes 4 dozen cookies.
   
     Biscotti are not meant be eaten alone, but to be dunked in coffee. If
 you
   try to eat them dry, you will find them difficult to eat- but they are
   absolutely heavenly dipped in coffee! these can also be dipped in
 chocolate
   for an elegant look (dip them long-way, to about half way up)
