Cranberry Orange Biscotti

I've been making this recipe for many years.   To be honest, I don't know where I got this recipe even.   It's one of my husband's favorite.  It's especially yummy with a good cup of tea.   The crispy Italian cookies are great dunkers.

Cranberry Orange Biscotti
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tbsp. grated orange peel
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup dried cranberries (coarsely chopped)
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Mix sugar, oil, orange peel, vanilla and eggs in a large bowl.  Then stir in the remaining ingredients.

Turn dough onto and lightly floured surface.  Knead until smooth.  Make into 2 rectangles (10x3 inches) on a parchment lined cookie sheet.

Bake 25-30 mins.  Cut into 1/2 inch slices with a bread knife.  Lay slices on cookie sheet and bake 15 mins more, turning once until the cookies are crisp and light brown.  Immediately remove form cookie sheet and place on a wire rack to cool.


  1. Hey Jeran, I just finished making Cranberry Orange Cookies, but with fresh cranberries - I think they are my new favorites. It would sure be fun to have another cooking day together - maybe one of these days I will find my way south!

  2. yeah, that would be fun Lois. I'm sure mum could find a great excuse to put us to work.

  3. I've eaten these. I can attest to their yumminess.
