Cranberry Orange Biscotti Recipe
Cranberry Orange Biscotti
- 1 cup dried cranberries
- 3 tablespoons orange juice
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp orange zest zest from 1 orange
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3 oz. white chocolate not white chips or it doesn't melt good
- Place dried cranberries in a bowl and add boiling water for 2 minutes then drain well.
- In a large bowl combine the sugar, orange juice, zest, and butter with a whisk until well mixed then add one egg at a time
- In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt
- Add flour mixture to wet ingredients and mix until incorporated
- Add cranberries and mix well then chill dough for 30 minutes
- Preheat oven to 350 and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper
- Spray hands with PAM then divide dough in half and shape into a 4"by 8" rectangle
- Bake for 25 minutes (or until light golden brown and edges start to brown)
- Place parchment paper on cooling rack for 15 minutes
- Slice each log into 1/2-3/4" slices then place (cut side down) on cookie sheet (no paper) and bake again for about 25-30 minutes turning halfway through
- Biscotti should be crispy
- Remove and cool
- In a small bowl place white chocolate and microwave on high stirring every 10 seconds until just melted - watch so it does not burn
- Drizzle with a fork over one side of biscotti
- Place in refrigerator to harden (I keep my biscotti in the refrigerator in an air tight container)
