A chocolate drizzle lends a little sweetness to biscotti loaded with walnuts and dried cranberries. Before your family has a chance to eat them all, wrap some up to give as gifts!Joan Duckworth, Lee's Summit, Missouri
Shirley Kidd started making these treats after tasting a batch her friend whipped up. "I immediately requested the recipe and have been baking them by the dozens ever since," she enthuses from her home in New London, Minnesota. "The icing is an ideal complement to the tart berries in the cookies."
When my husband came home from the grocery store with six bags of fresh cranberries, I launched a full scale effort to creatively use them all. Bursting with tart cranberry and sweet coconut flavor, these tasty bites are my favorite result from that experiment.
"A fellow stay-at-home mom gave me this recipe so we could enjoy our latte breaks more affordably with homemade biscotti," says Evelyn Bethards Wohlers of Columbia, Maryland. "I modified the original version by using a sugar substitute and reducing the carbohydrates and fat. Tangy dried cranberries and spices give it delicious flavor."
Field editor Dawn Fagerstrom of Warren Minnesota says friends were delighted to receive her fruit and nut biscotti mix. “Layer the dry ingredients in a clear jar, add a bow and attach the instructions for preparation and baking,” she notes.
