If you haven’t figured it out by now, I love biscotti. They are easy to make and even easier to eat. It combines a little sweet and a little crunch and knocks those cravings out of the park. If you liked the cherry almond biscotti, this recipe is even easier and just as much of a crowd pleaser.
What You’ll Need:
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup dried cranberries, coarsely chopped
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
< a little sweet treat for friends last week >
The How To:
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, stir together sugar, oil, orange peel, vanilla and eggs. Stir in remaining ingredients.
2. Place dough on lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth. On ungreased cookie sheet, shape half of dough at a time into 10×3-inch rectangle.
3. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on cookie sheet 15 minutes. Cut rectangle crosswise into 1/2-inch slices. Turn slices cut sides down on cookie sheet.
4. Bake about 15 minutes longer, turning once, until crisp and light brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes & enjoy!
