Cranberry Orange Biscotti

And the biscotti obsession continues.

I think I told you several months back (okay, it was May) that I had made three different flavors of biscotti for some company one weekend. This is the third flavor I made. Sorry it took so long to share, I’m sure you were on the edge of your seat waiting….

I have made it TWICE since that weekend with friends, it’s so easy to put together, and I love the flavor combination. It helps having crunchy sugar and white chocolate drizzled on top!

Biscotti keeps well in a covered container or ziploc freezer bag. I tend to store mine in a ziploc bag with all the air pressed out. It has lasted for over a week. Probably could last longer, but I eat it all up before I can test that theory!


The crunchy biscotti with the chewy Craisins, combined with orange zest and white chocolate are a decadent treat for your morning coffee! ENJOY!

    As one of the friends at said weekend, this was absolutely delicious! And I’m a chocolate person so at first I kept taking the turtle ones but once I tried this kind I was totally in. They were awesome – Aimee thanks for making me crave some now! Hmmmm, maybe bring some at Thanksgiving!

    Oh, YUM! These would be perfect for hostess gifts during the holidays…but I’d have to reserve a few just for me!

    biscotti is one of those things that my mom makes so well that I’m afraid to try it myself! I do so love the texture and how perfect it is for dunking in tea! This combination may be what I need to give it a try myself.

      Jess, you totally need to try it! You will be surprised at how easy it is to make! And it’s awesome to have on hand, or give as gifts! What flavors does your mom make?

    Love these flavors in biscotti! Wish I were dipping one in my coffee right now!

    I’m also a biscotti fan, and these look GREAT
    I’m heading over to check the snickerdoodle biscotti :)

    Aimee, I’ve never made biscotti at home before! you have so many wonderful recipes, I wouldn’t know where to start! This flavor is perfect for the upcoming holidays. I want anything and everything cranberry these days. The white chocolate drizzle is a gorgeous touch. :)

    I love homemade biscotti, and orange-cranberry is one of my very favorite holiday flavor combinations. These look great, Aimee! And I love the white chocolate drizzle on top–perfect!

    Would it be totally wrong of me to want to dip this in icing instead of drizzling the icing on it because more icing is always a good thing, yes? Maybe I’ll get off my butt and finally make biscotti this year! Looks fantastic.

    This is a winner! I don’t even want to share them with anyone!

    Found this recipe as a part of my traditional DIY christmas gift basket. They were such a hit I am making a second batch today for my FIL birthday! Keep up the great work! By the way, I love the drizzle of chocolate and crumbles of orange peel. Gives the biscotti a strong but not-to-sweet glaze.

    I make your caramel macchiato biscotti all the time and they keep well. Was wondering how long I could keep these. Thanks for your time.

      I keep mine in an airtight ziploc bag. If I don’t go crazy, they last me about a week or two.
