This is hands down the best cranberry almond biscotti recipe I’ve ever made. They are perfect and easy Valentine’s Day treats!
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner.
And sometimes it’s not a big fancy gift or an elaborate dinner that makes the day special.
It’s just a little something to start the day off right and show someone that you care.
Kind of like a big hug!
But really, doesn’t that hold true for any day of the year?
So on that note, I decided to surprise Matt with a sweet treat!
Because nothing goes better with a warm cup of coffee than a great homemade biscotti.
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 cranberry almond biscotti.
I think the name just makes it sound difficult!
But, boy was I wrong.
This recipe was really easy and really, really terrific.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
