I like this recipe but the cranberries got hard after baking. I guess i should have soaked them in some kind of liquer before putting them in the batter...thanks for the recipe
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!
Wonderful! I used the extra 1/2 cup of sugar and sprinkled raw sugar over the egg white before baking. My BF kept saying they were "so-so", but I noticed that he ate almost the entire batch! And this with several other cookies and candies around! I made another batch to give as gifts and they went over very, very well.
Very tasty! I used macadamia nuts instead of almonds, very good biscotti
I was about to post the identical recipe, which I've made for years. So instead, I'll just give this recipe the 5-star rating it deserves. Make them just as directed with a couple hints- 1 1/2 cups dried cranberries equals a 6 ounce package, and I only use about 1/2 cup white chocolate chips for the drizzle. I also enjoy using dried cherries as an alternative to cranberries, as suggested, but I chop them and soak them first in 2 T. amaretto - yumm!
This is the best biscotti recipe I have ever made! I've had people tell me that they would pay for this in a coffee house. This recipe is easy, and looks great! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.
This recipe is delicious! I made it for the holidays with my mother. The butter made it rich, and the cranberries made it festive. This one is a keeper!
I've made this a few times and everyone always loves it. Homemade biscotti is always SO much better than storebought because it doesn't hurt your teeth to bite into it. I usually substitute half of the flour with whole wheat flour to incorporate more fiber, vitamins, and minerals, and it still tastes great!
