White Chocolate and Cranberry Biscotti

White Chocolate and Cranberry Biscotti

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temp
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 12 ounces white chocolate chips, divided

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line a heavy baking sheet with parchment paper. Sift together flour and baking powder and set aside. In a mixer, beat the sugar, butter, lemon zest and salt. Beat in the eggs, 1 at a time. Add the flour mixture and beat just until blended. Stir in the cranberries and 1/2 of the white chocolate chips.
  3. Form the dough into a 12-inch long, 3-inch wide log on the parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 40 minutes. Remove and let cool completely.
  4. Place the log on the cutting board. Using a sharp serrated knife, cut the log on a diagonal into 3/4-inch-thick slices. Arrange the biscotti on the baking sheet. Bake the biscotti again, for 15 minutes, until they are golden brown. Transfer the biscotti to a rack and cool completely.
  5. Melt the remaining white chocolate chips in a double boiler. Dip the bottom of the biscotti in the white chocolate and let chocolate cool and set.

  2. Gaby, thank you for this post. I have a biscotti recipe that I love which is similar to this although also has pistachios. I always have just dipped half the biscotti in the white chocolate. It looks fine but not quite right. Of course, no one has ever complained but it bugs me (I am going to post about them soon because they are one of my favorite X-mas cookies). Anyway, it never occurred to me to just dip the whole bottom in the chocolate. Much better presentation! Thank you!

  9. I’ve never made biscotti before, so this is probably the push I need to try it. I have to take something to a choir event on Monday, and these could be exactly right for that.

  10. I’ve recently switched to black coffee in the mornings and this biscotti would definitely make my coffee routine feel a little more indulgent! Looks marvelous, Gaby.

  11. I made these on Monday for the choir social and almost the whole plateful I took was eaten. I had to make a minor adjustment due to a shopping malfunction (forgot to buy lemons) but they were very good made with orange zest. I also divided the dough into two and used white chocolate and cranberries in one half and dark chocolate and cherries in the other. Mine didn’t look as neat as yours, I had issues with crumbling as I probably didn’t let them cool enough as I was against a deadline and my initial logs weren’t very neat. However, they tasted amazing, so thank you for the recipe.

  12. I gave biscotti to my foodie friends as Christmas gifts a few years ago and they loved it. I may have to recycle that idea again this year with this recipe for the co-workers.
