The very first biscotti I ever tried was from a Starbucks. I was getting my usual Skinny Vanilla Latte and decided to go for one of the almond and chocolate biscotti they had purposely placed on the counter (do you fall for that trick too?). They were crunchy and delicious, the perfect complement to my latte.

It wasn’t until now that I realized I could make these myself. I was thinking of ideas for some nice treats to share with my running friends for our annual New Years Run. We do our run on the last morning of the year followed by coffee (and Baileys) at my friend Amy’s house. This white chocolate cranberry almond cranberry biscotti was one of the biscotti that I made to share with my friends – I also made this Double Chocolate Biscotti recipe to share.

Biscotti are a twice-baked biscuit cookie that originates from Italy. They have a characteristic long oval shape and are made dry and crunchy from cutting the loaf while still warm and baking it again. Did you know that the word biscotti actually means twice-baked? Which is precisely the way these cookies are made.

The white chocolate with cranberries and almond are the perfect combination that make these biscotti perfect for anytime of the year. Sweet and crunchy, with the tangyness of the cranberry and buttery almond, these biscotti are sure to make anyone drool.

Another way to keep biscotti from cracking is to be gentle when turning the biscotti over in the oven during the second bake.

  1. Great biscotti!! One thing I did notice was the fact that she didn’t add where you needed to add the vanilla, I just added mine while you beat the sugar and eggs!
