This biscotti recipe yields both chocolate and plain biscotti. Both are flecked with dried cranberries and can be drizzled with chocolate for extra pizzazz.




  • Heat oven to 375°F. Grease large baking sheet.

  • Mix flour, baking powder, salt in bowl. Beat butter, sugar in second bowl until creamy, 2 minutes. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Add vanilla. Stir in flour mixture. Stir in berries and rind. Gather mixture into a ball. Divide in half.
