Cranberry Orange Biscotti

Concord Foods would like to thank Cindy Blake for this delicious suggestion!

Makes:  2 ½ - 3 dozen biscotti

1 box Concord Foods' Cranberry Bread Mix
1/2 cup dried cranberries, coarsely chopped
1/3 cup chopped pecans
2 eggs, lightly beaten
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, melted and cooled
1/4 teaspoon almond extract, optional

  1. Preheat oven to 350*F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix contents of Cranberry Bread Mix, cranberries, pecans, eggs and melted butter by hand until all ingredients are wet.
  3. Divide dough in half. Shape each half into two 10 x 3 inch logs. Place the logs lengthwise, a few inches apart, on a parchment lined (or greased) cookie sheet.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on baking sheets for 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 300*F.
  5. When logs are cooled, diagonally cut them with a serrated knife into ½ inch slices.
  6. Places slices cut side down on the cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes; turn slices over and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
  7. Cool on wire racks. Store in an airtight container.

*Chocolate Cranberry Orange Biscotti

Melt 6 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate morsels according to package directions.  Dip 1 cut side of each cooled biscotti in chocolate.  Place on parchment or wax papered lined cookie sheet until chocolate has set (hint: refrigerating the dipped slices will hasten the firming of the chocolate).
