"I received this recipe from a friend, and it's great! I use the convection bake setting on my oven, so it's usually 50 degrees hotter than normal ovens. you may want to add 50 degrees depending on your oven."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

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!
This is the best biscotti recipe!
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!
Made the Orange cranberry biscotti today. Loved the taste and texture. I also substituted the Orange extract for vanilla, added 1.5 Tabs of Orange zest and 2Tabs of fresh squeezed orange juice. They were gone in no time. My husband took some to work and ecerybody loved them! Thank you for a great recipe., I will make these again and give away for Christmas!
