Good Morning Cranberry Biscotti
Chef:  Jeanette Pearson - Plymouth, NE          Category:  Breads


2 (large) eggs
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon orange flavoring
1 teaspoon real vanilla flavoring
1 (large) orange, grated peel
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon sea salt, or table salt
3/4 cup dried cranberries
raw sugar crystals

Directions: Lightly beat eggs. Beat in sugar, orange peel and flavorings. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt. Add to wet ingredients and beat well. Stir in cranberries. On a floured surface, shape dough into a log. Transfer to a paper lined baking tray. Sprinkle with raw sugar crystals and flatten to 1/2 to 3/4 inch thickness. Sprinkle with additional sugar. Bake at 350°F for about 20 minutes or until it has a nice golden crust. Do not underbake. Lower oven temperature to 325°F. Remove from oven and cut in diagonal slices. Return to oven and bake an additional 5 to 7 minutes on each side. If you prefer, you can turn off the heat and let them dry in the warm oven. Watch so they do not brown too much. After completely cooled, store in an airtight container to keep fresh and crisp.

Notes: My husband enjoys these in the mornings with a good cup of coffee.
