Dried Cherry Biscotti recipe

Biscotti are twice-baked Italian cookies, and they are delicious when made with fruits and nuts. Enjoy our version with cherries and almonds.


2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
3 medium eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup ground almonds
2/3 cup dried cherries, chopped


1) Preheat oven to 350°F.

2) Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl; mix well. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until a dough is formed. Stir in almonds and cherries.

3) Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead several times.

4) Using a greased cookie sheet as a surface, divide the dough in half; form into two flat logs about 9 inches long and 3 inches wide.

5) Bake 25 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool 10 minutes on a wire rack. Reduce oven temperature to 325°F.

6) Cut cooled logs on the diagonal into ½-inch pieces. Return to cookie sheet; bake 5 minutes. Turn pieces over; bake an additional 5 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack. Store in airtight containers.
