Biscottis

Grab your apron... (Auntie Peggy made this one.)
Making Biscottis is easy.
Recipe:
2 1/4 C Flour
1 C sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 eggs
2 egg whites
1 Tbs almond or vanilla extract
3/4 C sliced almonds
1 (6 ounce) package dried cranberries

Heat oven to 325 degrees

Combine dry ingredients in medium mixing bowl



I like to use fresh cranberries

Chop cranberries with Pampered Chef food chopper. You can get yours here. Set cranberries aside.


Whisk together eggs, egg whites and extract in a separate mixing bowl. Add dry ingredients, mixing just until moist, using an electric mixer on med. speed. Add cranberries.


Add almonds. Pulse mixer a few times.



On a floured surface, divide batter in half. Pat each half into a log. Bake on a parchment lined pan in oven for about 12 minutes (just until firm)



Remove from oven. Cool for five minutes. Slice log every 2 inches.



Returned to parchment lined pan. Place biscottis cut end up. Bake at 300 degrees for 5-15 minutes longer (depending on how crisp you like your biscotti)



Cool on wire rack. Enjoy with coffee or tea.

I love your bowls, the biscotti's look delicious also. You will have to save one for me to try. Did your wee one help with this project? Mom107

thank you the bowls were a thank you gift from my mom for buying a number of Christmas presents for her. Wee one #4 helped with this project... (that is him sporting the apron) he did question why I was taking a picture of everything though!
