Cherry Hazelnut Biscotti

Cherry Hazelnut Biscotti

"Presents from the pantry are a tradition with me-and this crusty coffee 'dunker' is a favorite! Stuffed with fruits and nuts, it freezes well and can be made a month ahead of busy holidays. Dried cranberries can be substituted for cherries."

  1. In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. In another bowl, whisk the eggs; add the sugar, oil, lemon juice and vanilla. Add to the dry ingredients just until combined. Stir in cherries. Divide dough in half.
  2. On parchment-lined baking sheet, shape each portion into 12-in x 3-in. rectangle. Bake at 325 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until lightly browned. Carefully remove to wire racks; cool for 5 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees F.
  3. Transfer biscotti to a cutting board; cut diagonally with a serrated knife into 3/4-in. slices. Place cut side down on parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until firm, turning after 15 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool. Store in an airtight container.

I am going to give this only a four, but I'm doing that because the hazelnuts, cherries, vanilla, and lemon zest would be better had they been doubled. I will make this again doing just that. ...

I made this with walnuts, cranberries, and orange peel/juice for a little variation. Definitely could use more nuts, and flavor--overall it's pretty bland. Good texture though.

I made it last night and enjoyed it with our friends. I used tart cherries (it's my favorite), great recipie, can't go wrong with it. Thank you. I'm definately going to make it again!

These are delicious. The dough was very sticky but I sprinkled sugar on top to mold the loaves and that helped a lot. The loaves baked very nicely and did not break apart when sliced. This re...
