Grab your apron... (Auntie Peggy made this one.)
Making Biscottis is easy.
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 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.
