    24 Servings


  • 2 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 cups Almond Meal
  • 1 1/2 cups Granulated Sugar
  • 4 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 2 teaspoons Cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 4 Eggs

  • 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 cup White Chocolate Chips

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.

  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, vanilla extract and almond extract. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until combined. Fold in white chocolate chips and dried cranberries.
  4. Dust parchment paper lined baking sheets with flour. Divide dough into two pieces. Place a piece of dough on floured parchment and form into a rectangle measuring 9 inches long x 5 inches wide x 1 inch tall. Repeat with remaining dough.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Remove from oven. Brush tops of biscotti with egg white and sprinkle with sanding or turbinado sugar.
