Dried Cherry Biscotti Recipe

Publisher Photo
Need a holiday treat that's not overly sweet? Sharon Martin of Manistee, Michigan has an answer with her Dried Cherry Biscotti. The cherries and almonds add color and texture and a dusting of powdered sugar dress these up. CW taste testers noted these biscotti were not as hard and crunchy as some.
