Ingredients

  • 6 tbsps Butter, at room temperature
  • cup Sugar
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp Fiori Di Sicilia (optional)
  • tsps Baking Powder
  • 2 tbsp Egg replacer - whisked in 6tbsp of water (or use 2 large eggs)
  • 2 cups All purpose flour
  • ½ cup Almonds, Sliced
  • ½ cup Dried Cranberries

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a large baking sheet or line it with parchment paper.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat butter, sugar, salt, extracts and baking powder using a hand mixer until light and fluffy.
  • Add the egg replacer mixture (or the eggs, one at a time) and beat until completely combined.
  • With the mixer on low speed, add the flour slowly and stir until smooth. Add the almonds and cranberries and mix until incorporated.
  • Plop the dough onto the baking sheet and divide it into 2 equals parts.
  • Wet your fingers and smooth the dough out into approximately 14"x2½"x¾" rectangle. It doesn't have to be this exact.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes. By this time, the dough will start browning around the edges and slightly firm to touch.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool for 10-25 minutes.
  • When ready for the second bake, fill a spray bottle with room temperature water and spritz the baked logs evenly with the water. This will keep the dough from crumbling when cutting.
  • Using a very sharp serrated knife, cut the log into ½" - ¾" wide cookies. Make sure to cut the log up and down perpendicular to the pan and cut evenly so that the biscotti don't topple when baking.
  • Set the biscotti on the edge on the baking sheet. Reduce the oven temperature to 325°F and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the biscottis feel very dry and starting to turn golden. Remove onto a wire rack and let cool completely before storing in an airtight container where they stay good for weeks.

Notes

  • Almonds and Cranberries can be subbed with other nuts, dried fruit or chocolate chips.
  • Change up the spices to suit the ingredients - like cinnamon with dried apple and pecans.
