Orange Cranberry Biscotti

This recipe is adpated from Little Corner of Mine. It is a very very very nice recipe. Me and Shan had baked 8 batches in total, as mention earlier it took us 8 hours to complete this "project". It is not as hard as the traditional biscotti, so it can be eaten on its own without dipping it into your coffee. But of course with a cup of coffee, it will be the best. I had personally like it very much because of the refreshing taste. It's taking a break from all your chocolate and more chocolate. Enjoy...

Baked dough before slicing
Sliced and baked the 2nd time


1/2 cup corn oil
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. orange essence
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
Zest of one orange

4 cups flour
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup almonds nuts, coarsely chopped


1. Preheat oven to 190 C. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.

2. Beat (A). Add (B). Stir and knead until it formed a dough.

3. Divide dough in half and roll each roll into the length of the cookie sheet. Then move each roll to the cookie sheet and press down to 1/2 inch thickness.

4. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove to cool, then cut into slices with a serrated knife. Place the cut side up and bake for additional 5 minutes. Flip it over and bake the other side for 5 minutes. Remove and cool on wire rack.
