How to make Cranberry Orange Biscotti – Ingredient list

  • All-purpose Flour
  • Dried Cranberries
  • Rum-soaked Orange Peel
  • Almond extract
  • Brown Sugar
  • Granulated White Sugar
  • Salt
  • Eggs
  • Refined Sunflower Oil

As I told you, this recipe is absolutely forgiving in case you wish to modify it. Here, let me give you a couple of ideas to get started.

  • Dried Cranberries – Classic Cranberry Orange Biscotti calls for dried cranberries, but you can use fresh ones as well. Just chop them in smaller pieces and use them.
    Also, if you don’t have cranberries in your pantry, then you can go ahead with any other variety of dried berries such as strawberry, blueberry, cherry, etc. All are just as amazing as cranberries
  • Rum-soaked Orange Peel – When I soak fruits and nuts for my Christmas Plum Cakes, I include Orange peels in it. Over time, they lose the bitterness and become so flavourful. I took out a couple of strands and chopped them nicely for this recipe. However, you can use the zest of fresh orange instead in this orange cranberry biscotti cookie recipe.
    You may also use candied orange in this recipe. Just chop them and add it.
