Cranberry Biscotti with Almonds
yet another cranberry Biscotti Recipe


This Cranberry Biscotti Recipe makes a cookie that is what traditional biscotti is “supposed” to taste like. According to Italian tradition, Biscotti are not supposed to have oils or fats in them and are supposed to be one of the more nutritious cookies that you can make as a result.  Because there is no butter, margarine or oil this dough will need to be kneaded for a few minutes, till the dough moistens and comes together otherwise when they are separated into the two separate logs, the dough will be a bit crumbly and unmanageable.

You can "knead" the cookie dough in the bowl you are working with. You may need to wet your hands to avoid copious amounts of batter sticking to you, but it will make much less mess.
