This is hands down the best cranberry biscotti recipe. It was an essential element of our celebration of Gourmet Coffee Day on January 18. Because nothing goes better with a warm cup of coffee than homemade biscotti. And I have to admit, I was a bit hesitant at first to attempt this recipe. For some reason, I wasn’t sure I had the baking chops to make a truly great biscotti. But, boy was I wrong. This recipe was really easy and really, really terrific. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
