Double Chocolate Cranberry Biscotti

I'm Italian, and this biscotti is a holiday tradition at our house. It's a low calorie treat that is heavenly dunked in coffee or tea. —Patricia Stiehr, Eureka, Missouri

    These taste pretty good but the numbers are way off. You cannot get 6 dozen from this recipe...I was able to get only 3 1/2 dozen. Now, it says to make four 12x3 rectangles....I didn't make mine this long otherwise the dough would have been SO thin. I made mine into 9x3 rectangles and even then it seemed a little thin. Be careful not to overcook---20-25 minutes is plenty. I also added slivered almonds as well as 1 tsp of almond flavoring and 1 tsp of vanilla flavoring. I melted white chocolate and drizzled it over the top after baking. With these additions/changes they tasted pretty good.
