These are great. I made them exactly as written (I usually use splenda, but it's Christmas so I splurged :) )I love the combination of cherry and chocolate, and may try some cherry extract instead of almond next time. Thanks for posting, Toni!

Another 5 stars. This cookie is marvelous. I used a very scant 1/4 cup of mini chocolate chips and with them being mini size there seems to be lots! The dried cherries moistened and softened in the baking process and are luscious. I used Splenda to replace all of the sugar, added 1/2 a tsp of baking powder and used Eggbeaters. Mine came out well baked but very blond and pale in color. They would be very attractive on a tray with deep chocolate colored cookies. I found them to be plenty sweet with the amount of Splenda I used but not overly so. Thank you toni for another completely wonderful biscotti!

This has everything a great biscotti recipe should have, just the perfect texture and taste, I love the addition of the dried cherries, the only thing I would do differently next time, is I would add in a bit more sugar, my DH and DS have en extreme sweet tooth lol! thanks for sharing this hon!...Kitten:)

These biscotti are heavenly. I love the way the chocolate and cherry flavors pair together. It's hard to believe they're so healthy. The only change I made was to use Egg Beaters in place of the whole eggs because I never have eggs in my house. The cooking times were right on. I can't wait to make these again.
