My love for biscotti grows every time I find a new recipe but when I make it from a recipe that I have had forever, I am in heaven. I think the best part (for me) of making these delicious crisp, dunking cookies is that I am the ONLY one in my house that likes (adores) them! You know what that means: I get to eat them all and they last a long time because there is no one that will eat that last one that I have been waiting for all day long. It’s all MINE. Totally not like that with any other baked goods that I make so I get really excited for this moment.
This Cranberry-Almond Biscotti is drizzled with melted dark chocolate and is divine on its own but just as yummy when dunked into coffee.
Would it be a stretch to say this biscotti is healthy? I mean cranberries, almonds, AND dark chocolate are ALL so good for you! Yes, I’m declaring this biscotti a health food. Don’t judge me.
