Cranberries and almonds pair well with the mild gingerbread flavor in these cookies from our Test Kitchen. The crisp cookies taste terrific with a steaming cup of coffee.

"I made these without cranberries and chopped almonds because that is what I had. They are very good and quite easy to make."

"I made this without the almonds since I didn't have them on hand. I think it would be even better with them. It was an easy, fun recipe and the biscotti turned out well. Smelled great when they were baking!!!"
