Orange & Fennel Biscotti - BISCOTTI ITALIANI, FENNEL SEED FLAVORED COOKIE

When you want to get serious about cutting down on food, the BEST DIET in the world is FENNEL. This licorice tasting fat celery shaped thing is a real appetite killer. Like licorice herb, it cures the munchies, acts on the pancreas in some strange way. Eat it fresh grown, raw, sliced in a salad  with your vinagrette or ranch dressing . Eat a plate of that you don't need another meal for four or five hours as fennel kills appetite. Simmer fennel into your soups. The intense licorice flavor disappears when simmered in soup. Grow your own fennel as it's costly to buy ---BUT when your fennel goes to seed, best thing in the world, biscotti with coffee TWICE BAKED cookie, once as a loaf, then cut into slices baked again. Fennel, almond, dried fruit, the Italians use one or all. THEY ARE NOT A DIET FOOD. Just the other end-spectrum use of Fennel.

3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup butter, softened

2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 tbs fennel seeds, lightly toasted
fine zest from one large orange
2 tbs "coffee sugar" (large granule, unrefined sugar)
finely chopped walnuts add a lot!

Sift together flour and baking powder into a bowl. In the bowl of an
electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and
sugar until light and fluffy. Add three eggs, one at a time. Add Triple Sec
and vanilla. Gradually mix in flour mixture until combined. Mix in fennel
seeds and orange zest.

Turn out onto a lightly-floured surface. Divide in half. Roll halves into
12-inch logs. Flatten slightly and transfer to a Silpat-lined baking sheet.
Beat remaining egg and brush over surface of dough. Sprinkle with coffee
sugar. Bake 35 minutes at 325F. Transfer to a wire rack to cool for 20
