  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Beat butter and sugar together in a bowl until mixture is creamy. Beat in eggs, orange zest, orange extract, and almond extract.
  3. Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl; mix dry ingredients into moist ingredients to make a stiff dough. Mix sweetened cranberries into dough. Form dough into a ball, cut into halves, and shape each half into a log. Place logs onto prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes. Let logs cool completely on wire racks.
  5. Cut logs into slices on a slight diagonal and lay the slices on the parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake biscotti until crisp and lightly golden brown, about 7 minutes.

This was a great biscotti recipe! Unfortunately my grocery store doesn't carry orange extract so I had to leave that out. I added a extra orange zest to make sure that I would get the orange flavor and substituted with vanilla extra. Received a number of compliments and will be making this again soon! I also needed to add to the baking time to get a nice crunchy biscotti.

I bake biscotti twice a week and have a pretty extensive collection of biscotti recipes. This one is among the best.

Delicious! I followed the recipe exactly but cooked them at a higher temperature (375). My family couldn't stop raving about them... when their mouths weren't full!

I made these last year and they were so yummy. It was the first thing I was asked to make this year. They are in the oven now and my house smells amazing. I will be topping with an orange icing glaze.

I loved these Cranberry-Orange Biscotti. I followed the directions as stated except for the second baking. 7 minutes on one side did not result in a crispy crust. To get a crispy biscotti, I had to bake them 7-8 minutes on both sides. Depending on how crisp you like your biscotti the second baking time will need to be longer. The dough was so easy to roll out. Some biscotti recipes have sticky dough. This dough was not sticky. I loved the orange zest along with the orange extract and cranberries. I cut off the ends, and of course I had to taste the biscotti. Delicious!

This is a great recipe. I made each piece smaller (shorter), making it possible to get 24 out of the recipe. I thought the calories listed were too high so I entered the ingredients into a calorie creator and found that with the smaller pieces, each piece is only 90 calories. For the second baking, I baked them 5 minutes, then turned them over and baked another 5 minutes. I've had nothing but raves with this recipe.

I'm not a baker or chef and likely have no business in the kitchen. That being said, the recipe was easy to follow, prep and finish. The taste is phenomenal. My only complaint is the time and temp the recipe calls for. Now before anyone comments that oven temps vary, i know that! I have a two year old oven and have a thermometer in the oven (although I'm not a baker or chef, but my wife is...). Lol! I made two batches one following the recipe to the letter and I had to bake that batch about 8 extra minutes and then after slicing and placing them back in the oven to finish them, that also took about 8 minutes longer... The second batch I bumped the temp up to 375 and that one was perfect at the recipe times. All in all, a great recipe!
