Dried Cranberry Biscotti

I used to make these with a little melted white chocolate drizzled across the top. This version comes from The Heart of New England.

2 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter at room temp.
2 large eggs
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1 1/2 c. dried cranberries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in medium bowl; stir well to blend. With electric mixer beat sugar eggs, butter and extract. Add and mix in flour mixture. Mix in cranberries.

Divide dough in half. Using floured hands shape into 2 logs. Bake 30-35 minutes. Cool completely. Slice logs into 1/2 inch pieces with serrated knife and bake slices 10 minutes without parchment. Turn over and bake additional 5 minutes.

Makes about 3 dozen.
