Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a cookie sheet or line it with parchment paper.
  2. Cream together butter and sugar in a bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
  3. Sift together the flour, cinnamon, and baking powder in a separate bowl. Mix dry ingredients into the egg mixture. Stir in the espresso powder, orange zest, chocolate chips, dried apricots, dried cranberries and almonds.
  4. Shape dough into two equal logs approximately 12 inches long by 2 inches diameter. Place logs on baking sheet, and flatten out to about 1 inch thickness. Brush the log with egg wash.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until edges are golden and the center is firm, about 35 to 40 minutes. Remove from oven to cool on the pans. When loaves are cool enough to handle, use a serrated knife to slice the loaves diagonally into 1/2 inch thick slices. Return the slices to the baking sheet.
  6. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Bake until they start turning light brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool completely, and store in an airtight container at room temperature.

Very Good! An acquaintance asked me if I made these biscotti to sell because if I did she wanted to buy some!

Made this again recently, this is still one of my favorite biscotti recipes. Instead of "stirring" in the toppings (chocolate, almonds, etc) I put the dough on a cutting board/clean surface and ...

There are a lot of flavors going on but they complement each other very well. I drizzled mine with melted chocolate.
