A perfect holiday cookie! You can substitute dried cherries for the cranberries, use a good quality white chocolate for this, I use Lindt or Baker's. These can be made up to 1 week ahead, or freeze in an air tight container. I highly suggest to double this recipe, these are wonderful biscotti!
These defy description - are they a bar cookie? Or are they candy? Either way they are delicious, very very easy to make. I always make these at holiday time and I also make a big three batch amount to donate to my church's "cookie walk" at our holiday fair. Of course everyone LOVES them. I got this recipe years ago - one of my first years of teaching from a regular substitute teacher who brought them in to share.
I make this at Christmas Time every year for my cookie platters that I give away. I've made it with plain graham crackers, chocolate graham crackers, town house and ritz crackers. I prefer the town house or ritz crackers the best as it is just a little bit "less" sweet.
"I love visiting with friends over a pot of coffee, so I developed these crisp, chocolaty cookies to munch along with each cup," comments Jeanie Williams of Minnetonka, Minnesota. Brownie mix makes them easy to stir up, and a white chocolate and almond topping adds a festive look.
From Taste of Home 25 top favorites! A reviewer said she love them but makes them without the white chocolate because they store better.
This is yet another wonderful, fabulous, delightful recipe from Alice Medrich ("Cookies and Brownies"). It took me a lot of work to track down this cookbook, which is out of print -- everything I've made from it has been first-rate. They need to bring this back into print!
The flavour and texture of this biscotti is very light, easier to bite into than some recipes. You could dip the finished, cooled cookies into additional melted white chocolate but I don't like the ginger flavour to be over-powered by the chocolate so I leave them as is.
This is a recipe I came up with on a whim while trying to find a way to use refrigerated pre-rolled pie crusts that I had on hand, and didn't want to waste. Although not as rich a dough as traditional rugelach, these are delicious, and they came out even better than I expected!
This was the first biscotti recipe I ever made and I was amazed at how easy it was to get great results! The chocolate drizzle makes these fancy enough for gift giving too.

This recipes comes from the Betty Crocker Special Edition Fall Baking, 2004. What I enjoy about these tasty treats is that the recipe calls for fresh or frozen cranberries! Cooking time really depends on how many cookies are baked at one time!
