How to Make Cranberry Walnut Biscotti

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  3. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beaten eggs, melted butter, sugar & vanilla & anise extracts.
  4. Blend flour into bowl with egg mixture, beat on low speed until smooth. Add more flour if dough is too soft.
