    justcallmetoni's Note:

    For Christmas, mom gave me a new cookbook (what else!) of biscotti recipes. This one intrigued me as it uses whole wheat rather than white flour and brown sugar rather than white. Though I have not yet made these, thought it was worth sharing.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 325°F
    2. 2
      Place nuts on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake nuts for 8 to 10 minutes, until golden brown and aromatic. Remove from oven and let cool. Chop into hearty sized pieces.
    3. 3
      Cream butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl until light and creamy. Add in vanilla extract and eggs.
    4. 4
      In a separate bowl sift together the flour, baking powder and spices
    5. 5
      In a third bowl, sprinkle a tablespoon of the flour mixture on top of the dried fruit and mix together. (This helps to keep the fruit from clinging together in a lump).
    6. 6
      Combine the rest of the flour into the butter, sugar and eggs. Fold in the fruit and nuts by hand.
    7. 7
      Divide the dough into two.
    8. 8
      On a greased, sprayed or lined cookie sheet place half the dough spreading out into a log 1/2 inch high, 1 1/2 inches wide and about 14 inches long. (Keep your ends a little squared off so you don't have itty bitty dried cookies from the end.) Repeat with second log allowing space between for the two logs to expand.
    9. 9
      Bake in the middle section of the oven for 25 minutes or until lightly browned (also at 325 degrees). Let sit for a minute then remove to a rack for 5 minutes.
    10. 10
      Place logs on cutting board and using a serrated knife cut log into 1/2 inch pieces at a slight (45 degree) angle. Place the slices back onto the cookie sheet cut side up. Bake an additional 10 minutes.
    11. 11
      Allow cookies to completely cool before storing in a tightly covered tin. Stored well biscotti will last for a week or two.

      Oh my goodness this biscotti is DIVINE! To die for with a cup of coffee. I omitted the fruits and they were still fabulous, though I did have to bake them about ten minutes longer to acheive the perfect crispiness. Thank you so much!
