Cranberry Pecan Biscotti
(makes 10-15 pieces)
(printable recipe at end of page)

2 cups all purpose Flour 
1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder
3/4 cup Sugar
1/2 cup unsalted Butter
1 teaspoon grated Lemon Zest
1/4 teaspoon Salt
2 large Eggs
3/4 cup chopped Pecans (small pieces)
2/3 cup dried Cranberries
1 bag of mini semi sweet Chocolate Chips 
2-3 tablespoons Heavy Whipping Cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk flour and baking powder in bowl. Set aside.

 Beat sugar and butter together in large mixing bowl. Add lemon zest and salt into bowl and blend. Add eggs in, one at a time.

 Add flour mix and beat until blended.


Add dried cranberries and chopped pecans to the batter.


Stretch dough onto baking sheet and pat out dough until it becomes a log measuring 13" long and 3" wide.


Bake about 30-35 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for about 20-30 minutes.


Make sure biscotti is cooled. Cut the biscotti into 1/2" wide pieces, using a serrated knife.


Place cut pieces back onto baking sheet, on their sides, as shown. Bake in oven for 10 minutes.


Now turn the pieces over to bake the other side. Cook for only 5 minutes, then remove from the oven and let cool.


Pour the bag of semi sweet chocolate chips into a double boiler and let them melt. I used mini chips for this, but the regular size will work just the same. You could also use milk chocolate or dark chocolate if you prefer. Add 2-3 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream into the chocolate and stir until smooth. 


Dip the end of each piece of biscotti into the chocolate.

Set biscotti on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper to set up and dry.

 Enjoy your biscotti! This cookie treat makes a great holiday gift!  Place a few biscotti in a bag tied at the top and then place the bag in a cute mug for a festive look and a gift anyone would love!
