Lovely biscotti. Aside from replacing the sugar with Splenda I made them exactly by the recipe. They are more moist and softer than most biscotti and have a flavor that makes you keep taking "Just one more!". Great little tang with just the right amount of sweetness to balance to balance it without being too sweet. By all means try these with a cup of vanilla coffee. They look beautiful for Christmas too. :D
I also used dried cranberries and almond extract. This was my first time making biscotti and our first time eating them. My DH LOVES it. Easy recipe and just begs for a hot cup of coffee . Made for Went to the Market tag
Added just a touch of almond flavoring to the vanilla, and fresh nutmeg. First attempt at Biscotti and will likely make this again.
Had to try this recipe out NOW, but ended up using dried cranberries, 'cause I only have 2 bags of the frozen berries left! These are very tasty biscotti, which means I'll be keeping the recipe around ~ Definitely want to make these during the next winter holiday season when I can get fresh cranberries! Thanks for sharing your recipe with someone who REALLY LOVES both cranberries AND biscotti! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Every Day Is a Holiday! cooking game]
These are really good. I did about one third of the spices and 3/4 of the sugar, but I think I would do even less next time. I also wanted to punch up the almond flavor, so I added 1/4 tsp of extract (I could have probably tripled that though, to really make it taste like almond). I love the fresh cranberries in these. This was my first time making biscotti, so I probably didn't wrapped them loosely enough, they kind of lost their crunchiness the next day. Two and a half dozen was spot on in terms of yield. You can see from the photos that these look gorgeous as well!
So easy and they taste amazing! The fresh cranberries and nutmeg mesh well together...This is my Christmas treat for neighbors and coworkers.
ohh these are good. Made them teh minute i saw the recipe and have just tasted them warm. i will TRY to let them cool :)
