Quick, easy and super tasty !!
For an add flavour boost....I soak the craisins in 2 tablespoons of Grand Marnier along with the orange zest, usually let sit over night if possible.
I sprinkle sanding sugar on top of the loaves before the first bake, gives a nice look and a crunch.
This was a great biscotti recipe! Unfortunately my grocery store doesn't carry orange extract so I had to leave that out. I added a extra orange zest to make sure that I would get the orange flavor and substituted with vanilla extra. Received a number of compliments and will be making this again soon! I also needed to add to the baking time to get a nice crunchy biscotti.
I loved these Cranberry-Orange Biscotti. I followed the directions as stated except for the second baking. 7 minutes on one side did not result in a crispy crust. To get a crispy biscotti I had to bake them 7-8 minutes on both sides. Depending on how crisp you like your biscotti the second baking time will need to be longer. The dough was so easy to roll out. Some biscotti recipes have sticky dough. This dough was not sticky. I loved the orange zest along with the orange extract and cranberries. I cut off the ends and of course I had to taste the biscotti. Delicious!
I'm not a baker or chef and likely have no business in the kitchen. That being said, the recipe was easy to follow, prep and finish. The taste is phenomenal. My only complaint is the time and temp the recipe calls for. Now before anyone comments that oven temps vary, i know that! I have a two year old oven and have a thermometer in the oven (although I'm not a baker or chef, but my wife is...). Lol!
I made two batches one following the recipe to the letter and I had to bake that batch about 8 extra minutes and then after slicing and placing them back in the oven to finish them, that also took about 8 minutes longer...
The second batch I bumped the temp up to 375 and that one was perfect at the recipe times.
All in all, a great recipe!
I did make changes the second time I made them. They were great both times but I wanted more orange flavour so I added 1/2 tsp of triple sec and a squeeze of orange juice from a 1/8th slice of orange. I also added slivers of almonds and white chocolate chips. If I had white chocolate in bar from I would have added chunks instead.
Made this as written. Really good very simple. Packaged it in pretty seasonal bags and gave away to friends for the holidays but of course had to keep some for the house! will definitely be making this again.
First time making these so I followed the recipe precisely. I added the orange zest along with the extracts. Information on length of logs would be helpful after dividing the dough the cook is left to guess on how long/thick to make the logs. My oven is accurate but after baking the maximum recommended time they were still very underdone. Added 10 minutes and they were beginning to brown but still underdone in the middle. Added 10 MORE minutes and let cool then sliced - still somewhat dense and doughy in centers. the slices were normal biscotti sized so the logs weren't unduly thick when first baked. the second bake took a long time because the slices had to be turned and re-baked several times. When they were finally crisp enough and cooled a bit I was very disappointed at the blandness of the taste - the orange flavor was barely there even with the extracts AND the zest. Boring and ho-hum. I suppose with a ton of tinkering this recipe might be okay but why bother with a total makeover? I'll glaze these with a strong orange glaze so they're edible but I won't make these again.
