Cranberry Orange Biscotti


  • 3 c. flour
  • 1 ½ c. sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • zest of one orange
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • ½ – ¾ c. dried cranberries
  • ½ – ¾ c. toasted chopped walnuts


Preheat oven to 350°.  Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and zest.  Add in eggs, oil and vanilla.  Stir to combine.  Stir in nuts and cranberries.  Dough will be soft.  On a floured board, divide the dough into fourths.  Shape each quarter into a 10 x 2 in. log.  Flatten slightly.  Transfer dough to baking sheets lined with parchment paper, two logs per sheet.  (They will spread).  Bake 25 minutes until slightly firm to the touch and lightly golden.  Remove from oven and let cool 10 – 15 minutes.  Lower oven temperature to 325°.  Cut the logs on the diagonal into ½ inch pieces.  Return slices to the baking sheets and bake 10 minutes.  Flip slices over and bake an additional 5 – 10 minutes until firm and almost crisp.  Transfer biscotti to a wire rack to cool.  Biscotti will keep in airtight container for several weeks.

(Makes about 4 dozen).
