  • Form dough into two logs approx 2" in diameter and 1.5 inches thick on a cookie sheet. Dough will be sticky. Wet hands with cold water to assist if dough is too sticky. I use a silicone mat, otherwise you may need to use a nonstick tray or lightly spray your cookie sheet.make sure logs are separated by 2-3 inches so they do not touch Each other in the baking process.

  • Slice into 3/4 inch pieces.

  • The dried cherries make this biscotti recipe moister and sweeter than some. You can adjust the sweetness by reducing cherry volume or lowering sugar volume. You can adjust firmness by adding a bit more flour and lowering heat concurrent with extending time for the second baking.
