How to Make Cranberry Almond Biscotti


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in bowl.
  2. Whisk together 5 Tbs. orange juice and cornstarch in bowl; set aside. Beat 1 cup sugar, remaining 1/2 cup orange juice, oil and extracts until fluffy. Beat in cornstarch mixture, then flour mixture. Fold in cranberries and almonds.
  3. Shape into 2 logs on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake 35 minutes, or until light brown. Cool 15 minutes on baking sheet. Slice into 1/2-inch thick slices. Return slices to baking sheet, and bake 20 minutes more, or until browned and crisp.
  4. * Drizzle with melted dark or white chocolate for a special treat. I use Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate
