    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    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!

      Fantastic!!! These were so easy to make and are so, so, so tasty! Like another reviewer, I increased the almond extract by a teaspoon. Used craisins that I soaked in orange juice for about two hours beforehand, then drained and squeezed all the liquid out. And, because the dough was a bit wet, I added two tablespoons of polenta, which stiffened up the dough a bit and gave the finished biscotti a nice little crunch and texture. I was a bit worried about how soft the dough was, but all turned out ok. Just make sure not to put the two logs on too small a cookie sheet - because they do spread quite a bit. Can't eat nuts, so left them out and didn't miss them at all! And no chocolate drizzle because I have to draw the line somewhere - LOL! Note: I think the wetness of the dough is due to the amount of water in the butter here in Costa Rica, not fault of the recipe. Thanks for posting, Kittencal!

      Love this recipe! I used craisins and chopped them up in my food processor a bit before adding them to the batter. I also used a Silpat instead of parchment paper which worked very well. Now to experiment with the recipe a bit to make it lower in fat and sugar.

      Very good and easy recipe. This is my first time trying to bake biscotti and I like the results. I've never eaten biscotti so I don't have anything to compare the results to but they're tasty.

      I did have one question: when I mixed everything together the batter was dry, crumbly dry, and it didn't expand at all in the oven. I only was able to get 17, 1/2 inch pieces out of my two loaves.

      Any suggestions out there? Will be trying this again very soon!
